10 ludicrous Toothbrush projects on Kickstarter

Many KickStarter.com entrepreneurs from around the world are trying to revolutionize the world while saving the planet, thanks to toothbrushes. Here are a few of these crazy projects.

 

<<WARNING: you might be exposed to some bits of sarcasm in the following lines…>>


1 – The “regular, kickstarter style” toothbrush:

Ok, as a comparison basis, this is what a kickstarter campaign should look like. Classic.

2 – The “change a kid’s life” toothbrush

If you believe your kid needs a cute storybook to accept brushing his/her teeth, this one’s for you.

3 – The “protect yourself from the life-threatening dangers of the toothbrush” toothbrush-box

This one is for the “at-least-59,649” people who think they might get killed by their toothbrush. I’m not even joking…

As revealed on the site: “germs, poop and any other external threat” are the threats you’re facing when using your toothbrush, and you should absolutely spend 29$ to buy a little box that will kill the mean germs that might kill you and your entire family.

4 – The “trick your baby into using a toothbrush” 

Ok, so this one is for people who definitely fall into the second toothbrush target (your kid won’t be able to brush his/her tooth without great training and motivation) but absolutely not in the third one (he/she might however get killed by the said deadly instrument): it is a toy that your kids can keep all day, put in their mouth when they want (as in the toilet, or anywhere of interest) so that when age comes where they’ll have to brush their teeth, they won’t be scared of the friendly toothbrush.

5- The “Save the world twice a day” toothbrush

I’m not even kidding. It’s written in plain text at the top of the page. That’s the marketing argument.

6 – The “get some free time thanks to this faster-brushing toothbrush”

Always wanted to write a book or become a 6th dan Karate master ? This strange looking, electronic, bulky toolbrush is what you need to get the time you need.

7 – The “even more natural than the others” toothbrush

This toothbrush is more bio than your bio-est toothbrush: 100% natural; you don’t need toothpaste of course, but there’s more: you don’t even need water to brush your teeth!

8 –  The – hold and behold – “you’re-holding-your-toolbrush-wrong” toothbrush!

 

“Holding the toothbrush handle in your hand and moving it with your arms gradually cause the loss of your gums and teeth enamel followed by teeth sensitivity, a receding gum line, and tooth abrasion.”

In summary, the human species still has not guessed how to hold a toothbrush, but this new toothbrush will show everyone the right way to do it, thus saving teeth, gums, and avoiding costly visits to the dentist’s.

9 – the “what not to do on KickStarter” toothbrush

 

This one is a marvel. The sound quality, the light, the 300k$ necessary funding to start a toothbrush production, the music… Litterally everything participates in the pleasure you’ll have looking at this toothbrush project. Every wannabe crowdfunding entrepreneur should see that video.

10 – the “Commando emergency escape” toolbrush

Once again, I am NOT joking. This toothbrush’s selling proposition is that its extremity is made of stainless steel, so that you can use it to break a window and escape if you ever need to breakaway.

Larry page, founder of Google, is famous for using the “crazy toothbrush test” to determine if he’ll buy a company. This ultimate test in in fact one simple question : “Is this something you will use once or twice per day, and does it make your life better?”. Of course, a toothbrush satisfies both conditions.

Well, based on the examples below, I’m not convinced by Larry Page’s approach on this very specific point!
