New Japanese toilets flush via smartphones.
No aspect of our life is untouched by technology.
A new bathroom line include toilets that can be flushed via a Bluetooth equipped smart phone.
The Japan-based company, Lixil is behind these technology induced toilets and will be releasing three new models during the Spring of 2013. Using an application for Android phones, toilet users can not only flush, but lift the seats by picking up their phone.
The application also allows owners to see their previous….well, no other way to put it….. toilet history to monitor electricity and water consumption. There is a diary of sorts too, which allows people to keep track of lavatory visits and in turn keep a closer eye on potential health problems.
Music can also be streamed, as the toilets contain built- in speakers.
A bizarre smart phone application, dubbed iPoo has many features including a map that shows you where other users of the app are currently using the bathroom near you. iPoo’s website describes the app as “a social community that brings together pooers from around the world. Write messages, draw graffiti, earn points and badges, see what others are posting – all while dropping a deuce!”
