Oral B's Triumph is just that -- at least when it comes to geeky toothbrushes.

I was sure that wireless technology would take over the brain before it went for the mouth. Instead, Oral B wants to use technology to take on the Cavity Creeps, with its new Oral-B Triumph with SmartGuide.

The Triumph is just that—at least as far as toothbrushes are concerned. It has an RFID chip and wireless LCD screen to guide you around the deep, dark areas of the mouth that you might miss during that frantic morning brush session. If you did a good job, it winks at you, says Gadgetell. Now that is creepy.

Other features include feedback on brushing time, sensors that tell you when you’re brushing too hard, and an alert on when it’s time to replace the brush head.

Good hygiene is available now for a mere $150. Check the website for a chance to get one for free.
