Tech expert Kris Abel rounds up the latest artificial intelligence products for your home that aim to help your at-home life more convenient.

Oral B iO Series 7 Toothbrush: $350

This artificially intelligent toothbrush senses the way it’s stuck in your mouth, using vibrating bristles to “feel” the surface of your teeth and create a map sent to your phone displaying each dirty tooth (dark blue) as it needs more brushing (light blue) and finally becomes clean (white).

Red means you’ve brushed too hard, warning you to check for bleeding gums.

An emoji clock happily encourages you to brush for two minutes, which is worthwhile as the vibrations effectively remove plaque for a “from-the-dentist” feel sure to save you dental fees over time.

Developer to build on former Little Sisters of the Poor nursing home site in Warrensville Heights

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A developer plans to build on a 1 million square-foot site in Warrensville Heights, which was once home to a nursing home run by the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Cannata Companies plans to create what it is calling the “Silverpoint” development on 15 acres in the 4200 block of Richmond Road, which is in the Chagrin Highlands area on the border of Warrensville Heights and Beachwood, fronting Interstate 271.

The plans involve building commercial space, apartments and parking, according to a news release from Cushman & Wakefield/CRESCO, which is marketing the property.

Cannata bought the property from the Little Sisters of the Poor in 2015 for $2.2 million. The Little Sisters of the Poor, an order of nuns which cares for the elderly poor, withdrew from running Sts. Mary and Joseph Home for the Aged in 2015. The facility later ran as Altercare at St. Joseph

The almost 27 acres at the northeast corner of Plano and Lookout roads is what’s left of the old Owens Spring Creek Farm in Richardson.

Builders David Weekley and Beazer Homes want to build almost 200 cottages, villas and townhomes on the property, which is owned by Addison-based Standridge Cos.

The homes would be a minimum of 1,400 square feet.

A small commercial building site is also set for the corner.

Dallas-based Arcadia Realty would develop the property.
