Tired of Flushing Your Toilet? There’s an App For That
If you’re like many Americans, you’ve probably spent the last couple of days playing with a new smartphone that Santa left under the tree, amazed at all the awesome things you can say to Siri that you can’t to other women. Well, thanks to the miracle of technology, you can now add flushing your own toilet to the list of things you can do with a smartphone.
A Japanese company has introduced a Bluetooth-enabled toilet that users can operate via an Android app. The commode-of-the-future allows you to raise the seat and flush wirelessly. It also features built-in speakers that let you play your favorite tunes while you’re doing your business. The app also offers a personalized “toilet diary” to help monitor your visits to the can and your overall health.
Lixil, the manufacturer of the high-end toilets, plans to release three new models in spring 2013 with prices ranging from $2,300 to $4,600.
But can you really put a price on that kind of luxury after your next late night Taco Bell run?
