The Oto-Tip is an innovative automated spinning swab that makes for a healthier and more effective ear-cleaning alternative to regular cotton swabs. Many people reach for cotton swabs to clean ear wax, but this can actually cause irritation and push wax deeper into the ears, causing blockages and infection.

The Oto-Tip has a soft, flexible spinning tip that directs ear wax out of the ear canal rather than pushing it deeper as cotton swabs do. It is designed to protect the ear drum by making it impossible to push the device too deep into the ear canals. Unlike cotton swabs, the Oto-Tip also does not dry out your ear canal.

The developers of Oto-Tip are raising funds on Kickstarter to bring the product to market.
