The bathroom isn’t a place where you’d expect to find a lot of high-tech. But leave it to the folks at Kohler to bring the latest digital innovations into the stall.
As this promotional video illustrates, the Numi toilet is about as advanced as the average smart phone, featuring wireless Bluetooth sync capability that allows you to stream music from a mobile device, store MP3 files to an SD card, or simply plug in. You can also set preferences for ambient lighting, heated seat and foot warmers, hands-free open/close seat operability, and other features you never expected to have to consider for a toilet. A touch-screen remote control with a magnetic, wall-mounted docking station adds the finishing touch to this fixture.
The downside? The price tag. At $5,978 each, the average man cave will probably be lacking this particular throne. But it’s nice to know the toilet of the future is finally here.
