NestBrush is a refillable toothbrush that cleans itself with UV light

Dental health and hygiene are about so much more than a million-dollar smile and fresh breath. Heart disease and a host of other serious conditions can be linked by to your oral health, so it’s even more important to brush those pearly whites twice a day.

The NestBrush makes it easy to take better care of your teeth thanks to a host of innovative features that set it apart from other brushes on the market. It features a self-dispensing system that gives you the right amount of toothpaste each and every time, while food-grade bristles ensure plaque is removed from your teeth without being too rough.

The dispenser holds a small amount of toothpaste. You don’t have to use a specific kind; in fact, you can use almost any kind of toothpaste, so pick your favorite one. The toothpaste then travels through an internal channel and emerges from the brush head. You can rinse the brush out between refills, so you don’t have to worry about toothpaste drying out and clogging up the brush.

The NestBrush also comes with a unique stand. It keeps your brush up and away from germs, while a UV-C light fits around the head of your brush and blasts any germs or bacteria you may have picked up. This extends the life of your toothbrush and prevents you from introducing any unwanted bacteria back into your mouth when you brush.

An included travel case also emits UV-C light. Even if you’re away on business, your toothbrush will still be clean.

The NestBrush is currently available on Kickstarter for just $65, a special pre-order price that will increase to $130 after the product launches. The toothbrush will be delivered worldwide and comes with a six-month warranty. The Nest Brush is available in black, white, pink, and blue and is estimated to arrive in November of this year.

As with any crowdfunding project, be aware that a pledge is not a guarantee of delivery. You are backing the product and the idea, but contributing money doesn’t mean the product will be delivered or even produced.

Govee jumps on the Matter bandwagon with new LED Strip Light
The Govee Light Strip installed on a shelf.

Govee is responsible for many of the best smart lights on the market, and today the company revealed its first-ever Matter product -- the LED Strip Light M1. Now available for $60, the LED Strip Light M1 is hoping to bring a bit more versatility to Matter, which continues to gain momentum throughout 2023.

Apple HomeKit users should be particularly excited about the LED Strip Light M1, as its support for Matter also means it’ll play nicely with Apple’s smart home ecosystem (which is another first for Govee). The lights are just as robust as you’d expect for a product from Govee, offering 60 light beads per meter, up to 50 adjustable points per meter, more than 64 Light Modes to customize their performance, and the ability to purchase an extension kit if you need more than the included 6.54 feet.

What started out as a niche device prone to falling down the stairs or getting tangled in pet toys is now able to keep your floors clean for weeks on end without any manual input. They come in all shapes, sizes, and budgets -- but if you’re looking to get the most for your money, you need to spring for a premium model that knows how to automatically empty its dustbin.
Some robot vacuums are more headache than helper

The appeal of robot vacuums is simple. Instead of having to vacuum your home every few days, these circular little monsters can suck up debris, pet fur, dirt, and everything else lurking in your carpets without the need to dirty your hands.
