    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. [​IMG]

    This is one way I’m glad even through technically I’m classified as a Millennial (born in 87) I’m glad I don’t act like them and need everything connected to the internet

    Will it unclog my toilet when it gets stopped up?

    Why would anyone remotely activate the Bidet spray?

    I can imagine that thing posting to your FB wall -- "John is now on the john doing # 2."

    I don't care for the connected crap in my house. Someone gave me an Echo for Xmas, I re-gifted the thing.

    This reminds me of that Smart Pipe fake infomercial they sometimes run on Adult Swim.
