Not a whole lot of innovation in the toilet industry, is there?
Public restrooms have toilets that flush automatically with a pretty cool optical lens thing, but that’s really nothing special. It doesn’t even clear the Flintstones hurdle, meaning that you could probably train a cartoon parrot to do the same thing, so it isn’t so much technological innovation as just a fancy way to push down a toilet lever.
But at home? Forget about it. Your great, great grandfather could stumble out of a time machine in the front yard and would be absolutely baffled by half of the things he encountered between the video doorbell out front and the magical WiFi within, but once great-gramps got to the old commode, he’d be right at home again.
Such is the nature of bathrooms, we guess. The last major innovation was plumbing. The next is probably some sort of teleportation that will seem cool at first but we’ll later find out kills sea turtles or something.
In the meantime, there’s poo-pourri. It takes something that we’ve all resigned to being at least a little bit stinky and makes it smell like your choice of several pleasant and amusing scents. Cloud Berry, Sweet Violet, Heaven Scent…the weirdest thing about this whole deal is that inevitably one of these scents will be your favorite and you’ll be sad when it runs out. It’s going to be odd to have a poop spritz preference.
Anyway, it makes your craps not stink. We’d like to see a cartoon parrot do that.
Of course, none of this does anything about the sounds coming out of your bathroom. Maybe you can persuade your guests to try out some bonus deal headphones while you go to work in there.
