Tired of standing in front of the mirror at night or early in the morning for minutes at a time to brush your teeth. Unico mouthpiece is the solution for you. The device claims to brush your teeth in just 3 seconds. The Unico mouthpiece contains a number of little brushes and a micro-pump system sends toothpaste to each individual brush.

The brushes themselves are powered by a separate power unit that contains a motor and slots into the mouthpiece. The company’s Kickstarter page claims that the teeth are actually cleaned in just 1.87 seconds but the duration was brought to three seconds, “to give you the time to at least quickly do your hair or spray on some perfume while you are using it.”

The Unico mouthpiece has four different sizes and each mouth unit sits on a UV rack for sterilization after use. A dock holds everything and recharges the motor unit between uses. You can change the wash duration and the brush speeds from an app that accompanies the product.

Unico aimed to raise $89,200 on Kickstarter but has raised $833,000 with still a little time to go. The basic kit starts at $118 and has a simple yet stylish design and it is driving the people to throw their money at the product. The company has laid out ambitious plans for their product.

Even though they still don’t have a clearly identified working prototype of their product, they claim that they will begin mass production in December and start rolling out the product in February. It sounds almost too good to be true but time will tell if they can deliver on what they have promised.
