Synopsis >

Wired to a computer, researcher Andy Chen is testing a prototype 'Smart Tooth', designed to monitor movement in the mouth. Containing a miniature accelerometer, it's designed to fit over a partial tooth, like a conventional crown. The sensor can differentiate between oral activities like eating, drinking, or talking, and produces data that can be sent to a computer for analysis.
