How smart is your toilet?

May 4, 2010 at 6:41 am Leave a comment

With the Gero-technology trend on the rise, it is worthy to talk about an item that is not new, but truly makes one rethink the bathroom experience.  The “Intelligence Toilet II” was created by Toto and Daiwa Housing in Japan.  This smart toilet has the ability to analyze blood sugar, blood pressure, body fat, and weight as well as urine temperature measurement.

A urine sample “catcher” within the toilet aides in the measurement of most of the above-mentioned body functions and then sends this information to your computer for analysis via WiFi.  This second version was originally marketed to women, with the additional feature to analyze urine with respect to body temperature, hormone balance and tracking of the menstrual cycle.  

Not only does this system allow for continuous at-home monitoring, it sure beats having to take a ride to the doctor’s office to be publicly sent to the restroom with a cup for a urinalysis.  Although, this very high-end toilet system will run you ~$3500, making it quite the exclusive purchase.  

What do you think of this toilet system?  If it were affordable, would you buy it? Why or why not?
