Oral-B Braun yesterday unveiled the groundbreaking P-7000 Platinum Black electric toothbrush that combines Oral-B’s world leading expertise in dental care and Braun’s renowned German precision craftsmanship for the Asian market with a launching event featuring singer-actor Vanness Wu (吳建豪) in Taipei.

Since its worldwide debut at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year, the Oral-B Braun P-7000’s smart technology-enhanced feature set has garnered widespread coverage from major media outlets including Reuters and CNET, astounding technology journalists with the world’s first Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity-equipped electric toothbrush that has elevated the standard of personal dental care.

The P-7000 features a motor sports inspired chassis design that exudes speed and stellar performance attributes. Envisioned by the renowned German industrial designer Dieter Rams, the P-7000 has been proven to be the best personal dental care solution by exhaustive testing at Oral-B and Braun.

The P-7000 is capable of reaching its peak performance of 48,000 revolutions-per-minute, a speed only matched by elite race cars. Under the scrutiny of a high-speed camera that is capable of taking 10,000 photographs per minute, a test by Oral-B Braun showed that the P-7000 took a mere 0.09 second to reach its top speed, besting the 0.32 seconds required by elite race cars.
