Playbrush helps children with their daily oral hygiene by gamifying toothbrushing.
We have built a smart hardware device that attaches to any manual toothbrush and transforms it into a game controller – so kids and young-at-hearts can control fun and instructional mobile games (iOS and Android) via their brushing movements.
Playbrush was founded in 2014 by Paul Varga, Matthäus Ittner and Tolulope Ogunsina. Inspired by Paul’s godchild and being bad brushers ourselves, we strongly believe that brushing teeth is fundamentally broken and gamification is the key to changing oral hygiene forever.
Mashable named us one the best children’s gadgets from CES 2016, we are Seed-funded by top-tier European investors and supported by University College London and various renowned dentists in the UK and Austria. We have launched Playbrush in December 2015 and kids all over the world are now starting to enjoy toothbrushing.
Playbrush is based in London, UK and Vienna, Austria.
