Sharing The Moment

This cup detects whether a tooth brush is inside it or not and communicates this to the partner cup that is situated in another place. If the cup doesn't have a brush inside it, the other cup illuminates.

These cups are supposed to be used by a couple. Once both cups illuminate, that is to say, both boy friend and girl friend are brushing their teeth at the same time but in different places. It won't show how they are brushing teeth, but it tells them when they are brushing teeth.
