As much as we’re big fans of the convenience that smart appliances give us everywhere in the house… we never really thought we’d be advocates for a smart toilet. That is, until we learned about Kohler’s Numi 2.0 Dual-Flush Smart Toilet. With a decidedly modern profile filled with geometric lines, it’s a far more interesting option than anything else you’d find at your local big box store. But more than that, “Kohler’s most advanced toilet now offers personalized settings that let you fine-tune every option to your exact preferences.” In the case of this particular toilet, they mean it. Ambient colored lighting. Built-in audio speaker system with Alexa. Heated seat with hands-free opening and closing. Power-save mode. Comfort Height feature. Dual flush settings. Front and rear wash modes, along with a stainless steel wand. Self-cleaning with UV light and electrolyzed water. Automatic bowl misting and deodorization. Warm-air drying system. In other words, this toilet is prettier and most likely smarter than the first smartphone you had. It’s a marvel that no one ever thought they needed or wanted–with a price tag to match–but that doesn’t make it any less cool.
