A data-collecting device that can tell the difference between eating, speaking, smoking and drinking.

Most of us have told a lie or two to the dentist when they ask how many sweets we eat, or how much we drink and smoke. Unfortunately, those days may be over as a team from the National Taiwan University have created a sensor that fits in your mouth and tracks all of your bad habits.

The current prototype is 94 percent accurate, being able to differentiate between eating, speaking, coughing, smoking, drinking and breathing. All of this information can then be sent to your dentist, who will be privy to your oral habits, both good and bad.
