Control Your $4000 Toilet With the Smartphone, Lift the Lid and Other… Stuff (Video)
If you’re the one who lives on the toilet, stuck in there playing Angry Birds way too much for your own good, then you’ll be interested in this piece of news. Turns out that in Japan there’s a toilet with Bluetooth, WiFi connection and a special app that allows you to lift its lid and flush with the tap of a button.
Smartphones have been controlling appliances for a while now, including house heating, security, TV sets and coffee makers, but a toilet wasn’t included among those. The toilet is created by Japanese company Lixil under the INAX product brand. The name of the device/toilet is Satis and this is a Bluetooth enabled throne with hands free flushing and toilet seat lifting from the app. Speaking of which, the application is called My Satis and it lets the user play music through the toilet’s speaker set.
There’s even a toilet diary include to monitor your daily sessions. One thing I’m sure of is that I wouldn’t want this toilet in a restaurant, since people would spend more time in the bathroom than at their tablets… or maybe that will become the theme of restaurant!?
