With never-ending deadlines and time-oriented workflows, mothers these days are finding it difficult to find a perfect work-life balance. This is evident especially in the morning time when mothers have to spend time getting ready for office, helping kids get ready for kindergarten, and organizing food in the meantime. In this busy schedule, they don’t usually get an ample amount of time to focus entirely on the little needs of their children. At days, children withstand doing day-to-day projects like brushing tooth which in turn establishes a time delay. To address this issue, Kyocera Corporation and Lion Corporation have partnered for the development of Possi, which establishes brushing an intuitive assignment.
Possi is a musical toothbrush developed with the goal of decreasing the efforts of parents to accomplish the kid’s chores. The project was developed as part of Sony’s Startup Acceleration Program( SSAP ). According to the team, Possi was designed with the mission of building tooth brushing enjoyable for children.
The key idea of Possi is to make use of its proprietary ceramic piezoelectric component incorporated within the brushing head that converts electric signals into tremors. This builds it possible to transmit audio without relying on external talkers. The advantage of the use of piezoelectric technology is that merely the child can hear the audios exhaled and the sound waves get stopped formerly the phase of contact is lost with the child’s teeth.
The makers of Possi toothbrush claim that the brushing is meant to be the parent’s final round of brushing, formerly the kids are done with their own attempt of brushing the tooth. The form-factor of the brush is round and with a candy themed coating of paint, the brush indeed looks attractive.
Possi employs two AA batteries that they are able to offer up to one month of battery life if the brushing is used on an average of two minutes per day. As of now, the brushing is available only in Japan and is priced at 14,800 yen which roughly translates to Rs. 9,450. It is being sold through First Flight, Sony’s crowdfunding and e-commerce platform. If everything goes well, shipments of Possi will begin by March 2020.
The music can be played from any machine that supports a 3.5 mm headphone jack by making use of the audio cable provided with the brush. We do think that support for Bluetooth connectivity would have been a nice addition, but regrettably, that is not present here. Hopefully, we would be seeing Bluetooth versions of this musical toothbrush in later product design upgrades. So, what are your thoughts on Possi? Tell us in the comments.
