Your Toilet Hack (and the Perfect Toilet)

August 24, 2007

Well, this is nothing new to Japanese people. You can use the clean toilet water to wash your hands, which then flows into a sink for the next flush. Instructables site tells you how to do so in your toilet.

I was quite surprised when I first used such a toilet in Japan. Quite interesting idea, but I like their fully automatic toilets more 😉

For instance, this toilet from National (from the same company of Panasonic), A-La-Uno, is a beauty. Check out this flush flash demo. It’s written in Japanese, but you can click at each topic with an arrow to see its feature. Not just a normal massage toilet, this one can clean itself, as long as you supply the detergent, open and close the lip before and after you use, respectively, produce 3D sound (equipped with 16 kinds of music). Furthermore, during the late night when you don’t turn on the main light, this toilet can automatically gently shines on its inside and on one’s feet, and its silence design can make sure not to wake up anyone in your family. Not mentioning that the warming up the seat and massage cleaning. Amazing, isn’t it? 8)

I expect that soon you can download new music or watch some video clips while sitting on the toilet. Not sure that you want to chat with your buddy there too. 🙄

Oh, I forgot to mention the price, it is about 300,000 yen, ~ US$2,579.

    Hmmm, I wonder the next model will come with a built-in wireless router/modem! 😉
