A research team recently wanted to learn more about what is constantly happening in a person’s mouth.
As a result, National Taiwan University researchers built a sensor that can be embedded in a tooth or attached to a tooth. The sensor is small enough to fit inside an artificial tooth or it can straddle a real one.
With tiny wire located inside the sensor, the sensor has the ability to provide data to a computer. The research team claims that wireless sensors will be created in the future thanks to Bluetooth.
The sensor was unveiled at the International Symposium on Wearable Computers in Switzerland.
