I just couldn't pass up sharing this one: Kohler Numi, an Internet-connected toilet. You can now ask Alexa to flush. Kohler’s latest high-end toilet connects to the Internet and responds to voice commands. Beyond flushing, you can ask Amazon’s Alexa (as well as Google Assistant and Apple’s Siri) to lift the seat or activate your favorite bidet spray configuration. (Amazon chief executive Jeffrey P. Bezos also owns The Washington Post.) There’s no microphone on the toilet itself, but there are speakers to play your favorite tunes. Plus, it keeps track of water usage. $5,625 and up, available in the fourth quarter of the year. Unfortunately, we have three toilets in our house and since I wouldn't want anyone to feel slighted I'll have to pass.
