Smart gadgets seem to be everywhere nowadays, popping up in our cars and even in our refrigerators.
But there’s one place they’ve been absent from – until now, that is: Our toilets.
At the Consumer Electronics Show, the display floor was flush with ‘intelligent toilets’ that tout all kinds of high-tech capabilities.
The toilet that turned the most heads was Kohler’s $8,000 Numi 2.0 Intelligent toilet.
It features a sleek, modern design, complete with a heated toilet seat, ambient mood lighting, a speaker system and Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant.
That means that with just their voice, users can open and close the toilet lid, flush the toilet, ask Alexa to play their favorite playlist or change the toilet’s LED light colors.
‘It really is about creating that spa-like environment in your bathroom,’ Stephen Maliszewski, Kohler’s public relations director, told Dailymail.com.
‘It’s using technology to create that environment, so the technology doesn’t interfere with your vibe.’
