What is the most amazing and promising application of 3D printing? Yes, it is the customization of objects that are used on a daily basis. Meet the latest 3D printed marvel; Blizzident toothbrush. It makes use of two rapidly emerging technologies; 3D scanning and 3D printing.
The result of these two technologies merging is a toothbrush that is just like your teeth. All that you need to do is to bite on it, chomp for about 6 seconds and that’s it, each of your teeth has been brushed perfectly in an up to down and side to side motion. That is the claim of the creators at least.
Getting one is quite simple actually. Simply have your dentist take an impression of your teeth and send it to a dental laboratory where the results are digitized and then uploaded to Blizzident. Since it will be unique to every person, you need not worry about other folks using yours.
As of now, it costs only $300 and will become cheaper as well. Let’s hope that it does and is capable of surviving longer as compared to a toothbrush that has to be replaced every three months.
