Parents are fascinated with baby poop and engage in Dickensonian descriptions with other people who don’t care.
Babies grow up and poop on the toilet: “Daddy, look at my enormous poop.”
As a four-year-old, Sorenne’s favorite saying, repeated about 10 times a day, seems to be, “I farted, excuse me.”
Once she hits puberty, this fascination will end, and I will be nothing more than an embarrassment.
As people age, poop again becomes conversational.
And then it’s Depends.
But leave it to the bacterially-adverse Japanese to develop smartphones that can control a toilet.
Created by Japanese company Lixil under its INAX brand of products, the Satis is a Bluetooth-capable commode that users can command via an Android app. The super-toilet enables hands-free flushing and toilet-seat lifting, among other actions, according to website Japan Trends.
Called “My Satis,” the app also lets users play music through the toilet’s speakers, and set up a toilet diary to monitor their regular washroom sessions.
