Smart Toilet

The Outline on smart toilets:

The fact that the invisible hand of American capitalism forewent creating a smart couch — a social piece of furniture, one which seems way easier to make than a smart toilet, mostly for the aforementioned putting-water-in-close-proximity-with-electricity reasons — in favor of an internet-connected crap cube is an indictment of us all. Perhaps this is the first step to the erosion of the toilet as a sanctuary, as we slowly spend more and more time on our very comfortable and very wired toilets to the point that humanity loses collective control of its bowels because there is no better place to sit.
