Joke if you may, but smart toilets may be the solution to hygienic, environmental, and accessibility issues.
What is a Smart Toilet Exactly?
The way a regular toilet functions is very simple. When you flush it, water from the tank enters the bowl and gravity forces whatever is in the bowl to disappear down the pipe. That’s it basically.
So, because toilets are so simple, anything that takes the function beyond water flushing down a pipe, can be called a “smart toilet”.
Functionality of a Smart Toilet
Built-in Bidet: Smart toilets features a built-in bidet. The bidets often come with temperature and pressure controls, and some even have dryers, so you never need to use a towel.
Automation: Smart toilets feature automation based on what model you purchase. Some open up or flush on their own, while others are self-cleaning, self-deodorizing, or overflow-protected.
Additional functions are hands-free opening and closing, quiet-close lid closing, and emergency flush support in the event of a power outage.
Other Interesting Features: This is where it gets interesting, smart toilets have warming toilet seats, night lights, and built-in speakers. (No, that was not a typo.)
