Wisconsin-based Kohler recently unveiled Numi – the company’s most advanced toilet to date — according to a press release. Numi meets CALGreen requirements, is WaterSense certified, and has two flush alternatives with .6 and 1.28 gallons per flush. But it also does a lot more than conserve water.
The smart toilet is controlled with an LCD-based touch-screen interface that facilitates a relatively hands-free experience. That is to say, this is a bidet with a front and back adjustable spray, an integrated dryer, and a deodorizer to absorb odors.
Numi, which is made with ceramic and glass, also has speakers and the ability to connect with an external audio system, for instance, that may be in the shower. It has a heated seat feature and a floor vent to warm the user’s feet.
The touch-screen interface is used to open and close the lid and magnetically attaches to a docking station for recharging. The high-tech commode carries a three-year limited warranty and a list price of $6,390.
