Intelligent Toilet II: now with urine temperature measurement

intelligence-toilet-toto.jpg

The second edition of the Intelligent Toilet is upon on us. Or beneath us, as the case may be. From Born Rich:

Intelligence Toilet from Toto was a boon for bathrooms when it came into existence in 2005. Now the same toilet maker has joined hands with Daiwa Housing to introduce the sequel, “Intelligence Toilet II” targeting women cadre. Carrying all previous characteristics (measurement of urine sugar, blood pressure, body fat and weight), the new version adds a new function, i.e. urine temperature measurement and analysis to the successor.

    Until it includes an automatic ass-wiping feature, I’m out.

    Sure, first you have the Smart Toilet. Then you have the Intelligent Toilet. Then comes the Sentient Toilet, and the next thing you know, it bites you in the ass.

    Obligatory XKCD.

    Expect no mercy during the great robot wars.

    If there were any real competition in private health insurance, you’d get reduced premiums to cover the cost for buying one of these things.

    I really don’t see that happening unless the toilet phoned the insurance company with updates everytime you did your business.

    That’s when you started graphing everything!

    “Honey? The toilet says my pee is too cold!”

    After you flush does it say “You’re special. You have a very special purpose in life. You’ve been chosen. The Island awaits you.” ??

    Also, look at the current fad of hipsters and old people who are examining their poop as part of the “deep commitment to bowel movement” and health consciousness.

    Zuzu you made me laugh so hard I almost forgot that epic thread argument we had. I dont even care if that was a joke or not.

    Any mention of price?

    This is exactly the kind of device that could help save healthcare costs from the brink of bankruptcy (whether socialized or privately paid) in modern nations around the world.

    Medical diagnostics need to become affordable consumer electronics. This would eliminate 80% of the need to see a doctor while simultaneously providing an order of magnitude superior preventative care.

    Compare with the BlueLine PowerMonitor for interface with new digital smart meters via Bluetooth for providing real-time feedback on energy costs and usage in a residence. This feedback actually encourages more economical usage.

    Also, look at the current fad of hipsters and old people who are examining their poop as part of the “deep commitment to bowel movement” and health consciousness.

    All healthcare is comprised of three domains: diagnostics, drugs, and surgery. Only the last of those is legitimately expensive. It’s the mystique of “professionalism” which has led to medical cost inflation of the former two, but those are also the two which can have their prices forced back down to earth if consumers buy their “means of production” just as personal computers did to IBM’s mainframes.

    The women oriented toilet analyzes urine and collects data of one’s body temperature and hormone balance information, helping them (women) keep track of their menstruation cycle. However, bringing home your techie family doctor won’t make you feel well as it ranges from $3,500 to $6,100.

    If there were any real competition in private health insurance, you’d get reduced premiums to cover the cost for buying one of these things.
