Grush Using IBM Bluemix, Watson Analytics For Brushing App

Grush is leveraging IBM Cloud’s cognitive capabilities for an interactive gaming toothbrush for children, through Bluemix and the Watson Analytics API.

Grush uses motion sensing technology to capture thousands of data points while a child is brushing and sends them via Bluetooth to the IBM Cloud, where they are analyzed and turned into mobile brushing games, says IBM. For example, the ‘Toothy Castles’ game allows children to wipe away monsters in areas of the mouth that have not been brushed.

The brushing data is also made available to the Watson Analytics API, which provides predictive analytics and data visualization through a mobile dashboard app that allows children’s parents and dentists to track their brushing.
