Japanese toilet answers nature’s call via Android

Japanese bathrooms are about to become a little more interactive, thanks to a new smartphone-controlled toilet known as the Satis. Manufactured by Tokyo-based Lixil, this Bluetooth-enabled commode can be controlled with an Android app called “My Satis,” allowing users to flush, raise the toilet seat, and activate a bidet jet stream with the touch of a button. The app also lets you stream music through the toilet’s speakers and will automatically monitor “usage history,” giving you a better idea of how much electricity and water you’re consuming with each visit.
