CES 2020 kicks off this week in Las Vegas, Nevada, and it is bringing some innovative new tech products to your … bathroom, of all places. Yes, someone out there must have been dreaming of an intelligent toilet that can clean itself, and now those dreams have come true! Or maybe someone else has been itching for a smart bathtub that can improve posture while providing deep relaxation. CES is always home to innovative but weird and wacky tech, and we’ve rounded up some of the most interesting bathroom tech on the show floor.
I mean honestly, as great as tech is, it’ll never eliminate our need to use the bathroom, so we might as well make the most of it, right?
1. TOTO NEOREST NX2 Intelligent Toilet
To top things off, the NEOREST Toilet comes in a universal height that should be comfortable for everyone. It has a sleek, low profile and automatically opens when you approach and closes when you walk away. There is even has a remote control to clean your tush with iodized water and even dry it off for you. The warm water wash can be in the front or the rear, with options for temperature and intermittent pressure controls, so your bum gets that premium experience as you go about your business. Oh, and it also has heated seats to keep your tush nice and warm, and there’s also a night light so you can go pee without turning the lights on and blinding yourself in the middle of the night. And once you’re done, the air deodorizer kicks in so there’s no stink!
2. TOTO Flotation Tub With ZERO DIMENSION
According to TOTO, after performing some cerebral blood flow studies, results indicated that activity in the left ventrolateral prefrontal cortex (responsible for language) is dramatically reduced. Bathers in this Flotation Tub end up “afloat,” clam, and immersed in a meditative moment of relaxation. The entire experience is enhanced by some special massage jets that produce a therapeutic flow of warm air bubbles that envelope your entire body. Think of it as being similar to a hot tub, but it also has LED mood lights and a capacitive keypad — oh, you fancy now, huh!
3. TOTO RW WASHLET + Wall-Hung Toilet
- Manufacturer: TOTO
- Product: RW WASHLET + Wall-Hung Toilet
- Availability: N/A
- Price: N/A
This product connects to the company’s companion WASHLET, so there are no protruding connections (either water or electrical) or ugly gaps between all of the components. It does automatically open and close so you don’t need to lift a finger, and it also auto-flushes for your convenience.
The RW WASHLET + Wall-Hung Toilet makes use of TOTO’s CLEAN SYNERGY: PREMIST in order to prevent waste from sticking to the bowl, so it’s always looking fresh and clean (as much as a toilet can be, anyway). It also has CEFIONTECT to repel matter, mold, and mildew from the surface of the bowl. And finally, it has DYNAMAX TORNADO FLUSHING technology to create a full 360-degrees of cleaning power that cleans the entire bowl and rim with every flush — it practically cleans itself! TOTO also included EWATER+ to make sure that the bowl’s surface and WASHLET wand is always clean by misting it with electrolyzed water (slightly acidic pH value).
You’ll never look at using the bathroom the same way again with this futuristic toilet in the house.
4. Kohler’s Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet
On top of all of that, there is built-in Amazon Alexa integration, so you can even talk to your toilet and ask for things like the weather, news, traffic, and other bits of information while you use the can. This definitely brings an entirely new meaning to “bathroom time.” Heck, you can even ask Alexa to flush the toilet and clean itself.
The lighting means you don’t need to turn the bathroom lights on in the middle of the night, and the toilet even opens and closes automatically, your majesty.
5. Kohler’s Moxie Shower Head with Smart Speaker
With this shower head and smart speaker, Kohler allows anyone to sing in the shower with ‘outstanding sound balance’ so we can all sound like the rock star we want to be. You can also change the water flow and temperature by using your voice, the app, as well as standard Alexa commands.
6. BioBidet Prodigy 770 Smart Toilet
The Prodigy 770 Smart Toilet features an expanded comfort seat that gives everyone a pleasant bathroom experience with a warm seat and heated water. And the bidet nozzle can also be adjusted to each body’s contours for the best cleaning experience after you take care of your business. And you don’t need to worry about lifting or putting the seat down either, because it’s done automagically! When you combine that with the night light, going to the bathroom in the middle of the night is not as bad. And with the dual flush system, it learns your habits and adjusts the flush size when necessary, so you don’t waste water.
And when you’re done, don’t worry about the stink. BioBidet’s Prodigy has a built-in deodorizer that draws in air and passes it through an iodized carbon filter that will eliminate unpleasant odors. No more stink!
