In Australia going to the toilet is business as usual, but in some other countries it has been brought to a whole new level. Japanese Engineers have developed a number of smart high-tech toilets that can do amazing things. These toilets are being installed in some European airports and hotels. They are being exported to America and should be available in Australia soon. Amazingly these toilets can warm, wash, blow dry and deodorize your backside while playing music.
