Beam Technologies recently announced that they are patenting a toothbrush that will connect to your smart phone, to track how long, and how well you brush! This collected data can then be sent to your dentist, or, how Beam would like – even eventually to health insurance companies.
According to Advertising Age, ” Beam is conducting a pilot with an insurance firm and negotiating a deal to distribute the Beam Brushes to policyholders, who would agree to exchange usage data for incentives such as lower rates.”
