New App Makes Brushing Teeth a Fun Gaming Experience

A Japanese company Sunstar's has a new interesting app offering and device  

The new device has an accompanying app that enables it to connect to a smartphone with special features for its users, the special toothbrush device is designed as a game experience for its users as a controller gadget, which can also be a newsreader.

This is an interesting development particularly for brush shy people, by making it an interactive experience.

Sunstar's G.U.M Play

It is being branded as G.U.M Play, which is device that fits on any toothbrush. It then works by syncing with the app available on Android and iOS devices. The device also has the capability of a news reader.

As an example: Mouth Monster, works by presenting users with a candyland inside your mouth from invading bacteria. The invaders are dispatched by brushing at a steady beat in key zones around the gum line.

Another example: Mouth Band is a simplified Guitar Hero-style game where users choose from a selection of tunes and play through each song by brushing in tempo with the music in different areas.

With regards to news reader, Mouth News is a customisable news aggregation feature in which 3-minute news reports played through the device brush.

G.U.M Play is also fitted with sensors that monitor the speed at which you brush as well as the angle and zone of the mouth. Below it can be a video introduction.

The G.U.M Play comes in standard white, with a range of five subtle coloured rubber covers sold separately. It is on sale today, priced at ¥5,000 (around £30).

All WordPress.com Users Now Benefit from Security Encryption

All Users Upgraded to Security Encryption Settings

WordPress.com has announced that HTTPS is now enabled for custom domain sites. 


It mainly affects users which own a custom domain at Wordpress.com domain feature as all other users were already benefiting from security SSL

This upgrade was overdue when compared with other social services such as Facebook and Twitter where this encryption service is already provided by a form HTTPS for all their users.

Nevertheless, it is great news for domain site owners as WordPress.com now supports custom domain names across all of its sites, although SSL certificates are required to be owned by the users.

Previously, WordPress.com users which were using subdomains have had this security feature HTTPS enabled, however all the other users which use custom domains never had this capability before.

This development arrives in a context of the Let’s Encrypt project, as it has provided cheaper and easier ways to implement HTTPS encryption security on the internet scene. WordPress.com provides now each website by default with an SSL certificate which will be displayed by the familiar green lock at user's dashboards when accessed by the user.

Furthermore, in terms of SEO performance it is now also noted that Google prefers and gives more importance to all websites that support and have HTTPS enabled with certificates, as opposed to the unsecured connection of HTTP only website links.
