MP3 toilet

toiletmp3.jpg

Boy, this just shows how far we are behind the Japanese.

For years now they've had toilets that raise automatically; the seats are heated and I don't even need to mention that they come with bidets....

So it's no surprise to discover that the Japanese manufacturer Toto (not to be confused with the band) has developed one that comes with an MP3 player and an SD slot.

Thankfully, it's not integrated into the seat but rather in the control system/computer on the wall beside the commode.

Now if they could just program it to shout, "PUT DOWN THE TOILET SEAT, BUSTER!"

Not available state-side yet.

k:

now if all your fans broke down, you can grab a chair, sit in the toilet, and force the toilet to flip at you.

and yay, you can even listen to music while doing this!

Sorry, but I have to ask... is this really, really, necessary?

Ah, but we have iPod integrated toilet paper holders here in the States.
The iCarta (official site link) will "Enhance your experience" and is actually on shelves at Bay Area Fry's (cellphone pic of box as shipped) right now.
