Most of us go to the nearing toilet to do our business when nature calls. If the bathroom has the Kohler Numi that opens in the U.S. at the end of the month, you may be lured to hang out a little longer.
The customizable “smart toilet” allows you regulate seat position, water hotness and pressure, ambient lighting, even audio. Numi not just has a built-in music scheme with back speakers, but as well an FM radio and audio input jack for an MP3 player.
It has an adaptable animated seat and foot heater too, plus an incorporated stainless steel, self-cleaning bidet baton with a dryer. A motion-controlled seat and top can mechanically open when you move toward and close when you tear.
Nimble a bar of light on the floor to the side of the lavatory mechanically lifts the seat, though the toilet mechanically washes out when walking away.
There is pair of flush series: a water well-organized “eco” flush that employs .6 gallons per flush or a complete flush at 1.28 gallons. And washing out is tremendously calm.
The good-looking toilet sports a modest plan. It approaches in white or biscuit colors, and it comprises a detachable handheld touch-screen remote control that allows you manage a variety of settings for up to 6 individual consumers and in a dozen dissimilar verbal communications. Numi has by now been brought in some Asian markets. You can renew the remote’s lithium ion series and store it in a wall-mounted wharf. The toilet itself stops into an electrical passage.
What might create your stomach snarl is the $6,300 catalog price. David Kohler, the President and Chief Operating Officer of the Wisconsin-based business, admits that Numi is costed “at the top of the market.” But he says, “the luxury market’s coming back in this country and (is) very strong in other parts of the world. This product is targeted at those consumers who want the best — they want the latest in design and technology (and) want a fashion statement in their home.”
David Kohler says Numi has been under growth for five years.
Might video come after that? Kohler lately took the top off another creation in China with an “entertainment remote” that gives Skype and brooking video.
