Japan Toilets get even more brilliant! They can now do routine health checks.

To sum it up, Japanese toilets are freaking awesome! With delightful functions such as seat warmer, posterior shower jets, hot air bottom dryers, perfume bursts, to music… it sure makes the ordinary toilet look incredibly dull and mediocre.

It seems the inventors have thought of everything already for the ultimate toilet… but wait! A new and improved toilet model has just been released with more amazing functions. You can now get instantaneous health checks every time you go to the toilet. The new ‘intelligent’ model was designed with Japan’s ageing population in mind. These new toilets offer urine analysis, blood pressure and body temperature readings. It also can weigh the person with an inbuilt floor scale.

The chairman of Toto said he got the idea when he was at hospital and saw people waiting for health checks. He thought it would be better for them if they could do the tests at home. These toilets will also encourage people to be more health conscious.

All the health data collected by the toilet is displayed on a wall mounted computer screen and automatically sent to your personal computer. People can conveniently email the results to their doctor.

These toilets are quite pricey retailing from 350,000 to 500,000 yen (which equates to 4,100 to 5,850 US dollars).
