Smart lavatory: Lifts, warms the seat and cleans itself but will cost you $10,000

A Japanese toilet manufacturer has created a fully-automated self-cleaning smart toilet. The high-tech ‘intelligent’ lavatory opens its lid when it sees you coming, closes when you leave, and cleans itself after every flush.

And no need to fear the cold mechanical touch of technology against your derriere, as it will even warm the seat for you. The Neorest 750H, from bathroom and sanitary ware manufacturer Toto, is on display at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week.

The surface of the bowl is coated with a titanium dioxide and zirconium, and is super-hydrophilic – attracting water droplets to its surface to create a thin film of water.

  • The toilet from Japanese firm Toto was displayed at CES 2016 in Las Vegas
  • It opens and closes its lid automatically and cleans itself after every flush
  • Neorest 750H uses UV light and electrolysed germ-killing water
  • The manufacturer claims it may only need to be cleaned once a year

It uses electrolysis to remove any waste from inside the bowl and the flush uses electrolysed water, which has mild germ-killing properties.

According to Toto, it incorporates a number technologies to clean itself. The clever WC relies on Actilight technology, which blasts the toilet bowl with ultraviolet light, killing bugs and helping it to remain non-stick.
