I came up with a simpler solution - and maybe more evil.  And one not from the annals of science fiction, but one that can be actually be done in the real world.  A simple "tweeter".  Imagine a tiny "speaker" embedded in your braces.  Does not need to be big - hardly larger than a standard bracket.  But it emits one hell of a noise - just this high-pitched maddening "scree!".

The only way to shut it off is with a facebow.  Your "app" sets your time.  If your facebow is out of your mouth for longer than the specified time, then is screams until you put it in - no matter where, no matter when.   Who needs a padlock when your own moth drives you crazy?

hi, what need for can read this:

https://www.bracesforum.net/braces-stories-braces-special-(english)/the-wear-time-app/msg119384/#msg119384

Thanks.  I was hoping we would get more people interested in the stories section.  That way we may get more people writing stories.

This is posted at the beginning of the stories section:
you must have at least 30 posts (no spam) ==> then inboard message (pm) to polo/ Marty
so i imagine once you have posted 30 times, such as links to pictures and videos in the media section, then you send a message to polo or Marty asking to be let in.

The discussion of a "remote controlled" headgear reminds me of a story written by a friend....he knows who he is :) … called "Be Careful What You Wish For".  As I have not (yet) been granted access to the stories section, I'm not sure if it's been posted here yet.

It's only a few paragraphs, but here's a little imagined scene of some sort of computer-controlled headgear wear:

This is a great idea for a story.  I'm hoping someone will write it.  I'm very interested in knowing more about what this entity is that is controlling when the HG has to be worn.  Is it a piece of artificial intelligence, or just a random number generator.  Perhaps it is an orthodontic professional organization.

I wondered, though, if the wear time was only 8 hours, but random, then the patient would be required to go out in public with it on, to work or whatever, and could not take it off, yet other days would not be wearing it.  Full time wear has an initial bout of embarrassment and then it fades.  Locked in for only random days would be worse as it would repeat every time.

So then my mind started working in the background on this idea and it resulted in a story which I put in the stories section over here:
https://www.bracesforum.net/braces-stories-braces-special-(english)/scenes-in-an-exhibition-of-the-decoration-of-the-mouth/msg128168/#msg128168
but again, you have to have posted the required number of post and been granted access to that section.  It will take a few chapters to explore this idea.

One way to get enough posts to get into the stories section is to keep writing chapters for your story. The more chapters you add, the sooner you will have enough posts. The chapters don't have to be long or have a lot of action in them.

It also helps if you are contributing to the story collection. You could always write several different stories if you want to. It can take a  while to gain access even if you have enough posts. Just be patient.

First of all, thank you to m0190y for taking up my idea on headgear wear.

Something else just popped into my head: what if your braces were trained to only react if you exhibited bad habits? Self-tightening braces are some way off, but customs officers already use reagents to detect illegal drugs... how about ligatures that changed to, say, fluorescent pink if they detected cigarette smoke in your mouth, or sugar/other bacteria over a certain threshold?

For a more fantastical approach, braces could tighten severely, say, 30 minutes after a cigarette was detected - you can enjoy it, but you suffer afterwards, with the gap decreasing over time if you prove recalcitrant. Or ligatures that could somehow give off a really unpleasant smell if not brushed to a certain standard in a certain timeframe?

(Edit: Just to add, all of these ideas are 'open source' - if they provoke some literary thought, I'd be honoured if they were turned into a story, and all the more so if by someone who doesn't consider themselves 'capable' of writing a story.)

I like your ideas. It is always nice to see where different people's minds go when they are thinking of story ideas.

I should have mentioned Duncombec when I was listing people that have made a significant contribution to the overall collection of stories. He has a significant collection of stories on his website dedicated to guys with braces.

There is already a solution in this direction:

http://dereferer.org/?https://www.swissorthodontics.ch/smartgear-headgear/

Even if special readout devices are required, a power-saving Bluetooth module could certainly be integrated.

I took a look at that page, and something tells me that it's not been updated for some time. I think the give-away was where it said "Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7"!!!

I came across this on the news this morning: http://dereferer.org/?https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52717825... I wonder if something like that could be adapted to check whether appliances were being worn?
