The Japanese are not only way ahead of us in terms of cellphone technology, they even beat the crap (pardon the pun) out of us when it comes to the porcelain throne. Technology like automatically rising toilet seats, heated seats, and the inclusion of bidets are old hat to them. Toto from Japan has developed a toilet that comes equipped with a built-in MP3 player and an SD memory card slot for storage purposes. It is not integrated into the seat itself, but on the wall beside the commode for easy reach. The buttons there probably has more germs than elevator buttons, but if having some tunes can ease your constipation, why not?
