Alexa has been added to a £5,500 ‘smart toilet’ ready for 2019 
By Jeff Parsons

It appears that nowhere is safe from Amazon’s all-conquering virtual assistant Alexa. 

The disembodied digital helper may have started out life on tinny little speakers. 

But now she’s graduated to microwaves, bikes and, finally, the bog.             

But not just any bog. A £5,500 (that’s the standard edition) ‘smart toilet’ built by American company Kohler and on display at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES). 

 

 

 

The Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet has much more than just Alexa, though. It’s got a heated seat, built-in speakers (for what, we can only imagine) and ‘personalised cleansing and dryer functions.’ 

 

Surely the pinnacle of toilet design has been reached? (Image: Kohler) Oh, and it’ll also light up the bowel in different colours. ‘Paired with the new speakers in the Numi toilet, these lighting and audio enhancements create a fully-immersive experience for homeowners,’ the company announced proudly. 

 

‘Amazon Alexa built into the product provides simple voice control of Numi’s features and access to tens of thousands of skills, as well as a seamless integration of voice control into the bathroom.’ We imagine this is what Captain Kirk’s bathroom would look like (Image: Kohler) That’s right – because the toilet has access to all of Alexa’s skills, you’ll be able to get it to read you the news or play some music during your morning constitutional. According to Kohler it’ll go on sale later this year. And although the standard version costs £5.5k, you can buy a special edition version in black for the princely sum of £7,000.

 

So if you’ve got a few spare thousand knocking around and want a crapper you can talk to, 2019 is set to be your year. What a time to be alive.
