Tooth Monster

The mission of the Tooth Monster is to help kids learn the proper length of time for brushing their teeth, as well as to help create a habit for flossing everyday. By using the Processing language to code the interactions of sensors and mechanical parts, and how the sensors communicate through the Arduino, the Tooth Monster will play a melody to indicate the start and finish of the two minute brushing interval. When the toothbrush is put back into place, it will dispense a single floss that can be tossed into the red bucket. This will then trigger the dispensing of a shiny gold coin as positive reinforcement.
