Take control with this Android controlled toilet

Take control with this Android controlled toilet
Toilets and apps can be great sources of easy humor and laughs, but in Japan, they take their toilets seriously. Really! In most Japanese households you will find either a Toto or INAX commode that will heat the seat, spray warm water to rinse, and blow warm air to help dry things off.

Knowing how technologically affluent Japan is, it was only a matter of time before we would witness the onset of a smartphone app and a compatible toilet to do our bidding via that app. The app does everything from raising the lid, to controlling the bidet or monitoring energy and water consumption.

The INAX “Satis” is a fully featured toilet that also has built in speakers so you can play music to foster your imagination while sitting on the “throne of thought.” The Android app, “My Satis” connects via Bluetooth and in addition to controlling all the toilet functions it will also establish a diary of activity which may actually be handy in monitoring one’s health.

The INAX Satis goes on sale in Japan early next year. There are INAX dealers throughout the US and North America, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Australia, the Satis will retail for about $4,500. No word on if the app will be available in any language other than Japanese.

then you'll know right away when you get the error message. Whereas with Apple you won't get the error message and you won't know about it until the water touches your butt.

Apple won't give you an error message; it will just give you a message that will say, "Please connect iToilet to iToones to flush," then it will [stall] because it must first update!!!

well, it is a bit unusual for them for not making the apps for iOS devices. the biggest selling smartphone in japan is iPhone afterall, not android

A toilet device? This is the best thing they can come up with?

well, what the article failed to mention is that the toilet doubles up as a graveyard for iphones.

$4500!? That's an expensive sh***er.

Well, we know from the Apple fans that expensive means better. The only reason this isn't the market leading way to drop a deuce is people can't afford it, plus the other toilet companies put out hundreds of different toilets to this one and they're all plastic a cheap and most of them are returned but still count as an activation.

The Japanese? I know they have their sexual fetishes... but I figured any kind of poo monitoring would have come from our friends, the Germans. "Essen mein scheisse!" "Okey dokey!"

That's why you use face unlock. But be sure to record your face both relaxed, pushing and desperately holding back.

When flushing this toilet you will hear the sound of those APPLE stocks tumbling down....
