Yes, a lot of technology, innovation and progress, but there are tasks that we perform just the same way that hundreds of years ago, and in this case the brush our teeth, which have changed the brushes, pastes and their components, but the final always we need both.
Well, apparently this could change soon because the Japanese designer Kosho Ueshima just show during Milan Design Week in its project called misoka, a brush that you only need water to clean our teeth, no toothpaste.
Water and nanotechnology teeth dream
The secret behind misoka is that is equipped with nylon bristles coated nanoparticles of mineral ions developed by the company Yumeshokunin Co. LTD, specializes in nanotechnology. These nanoparticles are activated by shaking the brush in water thereby get a more in-depth cleaning of our teeth along with a protective layer of enamel.
The bad news is that the bristles have a shelf life of only 30 days , so you have to change your toothbrush every month, which may not be as ecologically and economically, since according to studies a normal brush has a life of approximately three months under normal use, so we would be saving almost exclusively in toothpaste, but spending more on brushes.
Interestingly it misoka already sold in Japan since 2007 with a degree of acceptance on part of the population, but now with the announcement in Milan hope to reach Europe and America to try his luck, but for this to happen first have to know the price, which has not been disclosed.
