I can hardly believe my eyes . . . Anthony Watts gleefully reports:
What sort of new appliance is so hip, so cool, so stylish, so sophisticated, so much a work of art ... that you’d put it in your glass penthouse living room, so that you could impress your hot model girlfriend? Don’t look just yet. I’ll give you a hint. It has an iPod dock, speakers, a light, motion sensor activation, motorized access, and a touch screen remote. It only costs $6400.
Yes that’s right, the new NUMI super toilet from Kohler flushes green dreams and your cash!
... imagine the howling that will now ensue with the worlds largest indoor plumbing fixture company ... reincarnating [the toilet] as a must have hipster item that is marketed in a way like a Ferrari is marketed to a guy with only one thing on his mind.
There's more at the link. Here's Kohler's advertising video for this . . . thing.
Personally, if I'm going to pay $6,400 for a toilet (plus tax, transport and installation charges, of course - let's not forget those!), I'm going to want the damn thing to perform routine urinalysis and stool sampling for my doctor while it's at it! I may as well get my money's worth, after all!
