The $8,000 Intelligent Toilet Is As Completely Ridiculous As It Sounds

“Alexa, make my toilet seat warmer.” So far, most of us have been more familiar with “Alexa, what’s the weather today?” or “Alexa, show me pictures of cats”, but now we may have to grow accustomed to Amazon’s voice assistant being, well, privy to far more intimate aspects of our lives. At CES this year in Las Vegas, American plumbing company Kohler unveiled a product that has already made a few headlines: the Kohler Numi 2.0 intelligent toilet. And whether one loves the concept of an Internet of Things khazi or hate it, it is undeniable that Kohler has understood that coming up with the eccentric gadget at the world’s largest technology trade show is sure to catch the public’s attention.
