Health Brush

Course: Creative Strategies\ Brief: Near Future Medical Equipment \ Fridolin Beisert\ Art Center \ Product Design \ Summer 2011

Health Brush will analyze blood cells that bleed from our gums while brushing our teeth, project assessment results and food intake recommendations on the mirror. This project began with designing portable blood filters for dialysis patients. After extensive research and iterations on a blood analyzer with interchangeable blood filter cartridge, the project took a major turn. I was advised to instead of designing a band-aid solution, the problem should be solved at the source of it's origin so people won't get renal failure in the first place.

I was able to write a java code to display the webcam on the macbook pro at full screen. Using Phil Van Allen's Netlab Toolkit allowed me to display animations with alpha that I created in after effects, showing different vital stats on the mirrored reflection.

Building Process:

Laser cut / raster 1/4" white and clear acrylic to create a cover and make my macbook pro look like a bathroom sink and mirror Hacking up a oral-B motorized toothbrush to embed a button and wires for the wireless xBee receiver.Embeded a xBee wireless controller at the additional base I have created for the toothbrush. This allows the button to trigger video to play on the screen
