High Tech Toilets
Technology is quickly changing all around us, making our everyday lives easier to manage, and in many cases more enjoyable. There have been many changes made to the standard commode as we know it today, but even further advances can be seen in the future. With a little extra cash, you can enjoy a few of these extra luxuries today when spending time in the john.
There are a few different things that are propelling the changes in the toilet and how it is evolving, including comfort, convenience, and cleanliness. Here are a few of the most essential components of a high tech toilet:
- Sick of arguing with your spouse on whether the toilet seat should be left up or down? With a motion activated seat, you don’t have to touch the lid anymore. There is even a motion sensor at floor level that can be set off to raise the seat for those who need it.
- Cleaning the toilet is one of the worst jobs out there, but not with a self-cleaning wand included. There have been products on the market that can be placed directly on the inside of the bowl, cleaning with every flush, but now there are toilets that wash around the edges themselves.
- Besides just cleaning themselves, these toilets bring the best of a bidet, along with an air dryer, eliminating the need for toilet paper.
- With a charcoal filter put into place, air is pulled through and deodorized, taking away the most pungent smells.
Not all the new functions that are coming with high tech toilets are dedicated to necessary functions. Take a look at some of the advances that have been made for additional comfort:
- One of the worst things is waking up in the middle of cold winter’s night, stumbling to the bathroom only to find a cold seat waiting for you. A heated toilet seat will take care of this problem on the spot.
- Besides just heating your seat, a foot warmer radiating heat from vents will work in that small area just as well as heated floors.
- For those who have trouble finding their way in the night, invest in the technology of a toilet that lights up, guiding the way. You can choose from various colors to light the sides.
There are more options becoming available everyday with the technology surrounding the bathroom. Although it may seem out of many people’s price ranges now, in time, these could all become standard, or at least far more common.
