Let’s face it – robotics, as a science, isn’t going anywhere. They have become an ubiquitous, threatening, but in the end, a necessary reality that on the surface threatens to replace everything that we hated about the way we work, live, or play – with some far-ranging consequences, especially when it comes to manufacturing and IT sectors.
But that’s not what this is about. In this age where every invention is driven by technological advancement, it is possible to conceive the unimaginable. Today, the world has smartphones and laptops that can fit into a small pocket, robotic motorbikes that can drive themselves, automatic cleaners that zoom about your house cleaning and smart toilets.
As people’s quality of life improves, more and more families are accepting the idea of installing intelligent toilets into their homes. Not only do smart toilets look impressive in a contemporary bathroom, but they are also beneficial for the users. Here are 5 ways robotics has influenced the way we use our toilets.
1. Robotics Has Lessened Concerns About Plumbing
Traditional toilets are known to have a multitude of plumbing problems. Even the high-quality ones are bound to experience plumbing issues after a while, which can be worrisome for the owner. Plumbing issues range from clogged toilets to bad sewer smells. Smart toilets prevent instances of clogging through embedded features that enable the toilet to sense possible clogging or potential toilet overflow. Through specific technology, a smart toilet also prevents you from flushing the toilet in the event of a clog; this maintains the water levels until you can find someone to fix the issue.
2. Robotics Has Made Cleaning Toilets Easier
Some robotic toilets out there are fitted with mechanisms that can self-clean. Such smart toilets are typically embedded with an extra smooth ceramic that’s equipped with zirconium. Zirconium is a coating that averts mineral and waste buildup on the toilet bowl, which makes the self-cleaning process flawless. Some smart toilets also have ultraviolet light features that manage odors by killing bacteria that causes odors and automatic systems that maintain a regular cleaning cycle, so you don’t have to.
3. Robotics Automated Flushing
Smart toilets have features that allow it to flush your toilet automatically. Automatic flushing helps to reduce germ levels, and it also reduces the chances of you falling sick. Parents with small children or potty training toddlers find this feature useful.
4. Robotics Allows People To Monitor Their Bowel Movements
Some manufacturers have figured out a system that allows smart toilets to monitor and analyze the contents of one’s pee for medical reasons. A smart toilet that is linked to an app can send the results of the pee to a doctor’s office for further analysis.
5. Robotics Makes It Fun To Use The Bathroom Again
Thanks to the abundance of extra features included in a smart toilet, peeing has never been more fun. Some standard features of smartphones include foot warmers, emergency flushing capability during blackouts, heated seating, MP3 and Bluetooth connectivity and a massaging bidet wash.
With all the bells and whistles robotics makes for toilets, do you want to know the the best toilet of 2017?
It’s still a long way to come, but there are certainly some strong contenders.
