SATIS-faction - a Japanese toilet that washes you and plays Chopin

If you have every visted Japan, you will have expereinced Japanese, or 'Shower' toilets.

The 'shower' function
Depending on the standard of luxury, they wash and dry you bum, play music, dispense aid deodorant, warm the seat, and have other degrees of automation that make standard Australian and American toilets seem like the equivalent of a hole to squat over.

In my experience, they take some getting used to, but once you are - you never want to go back.

All this luxury doesn't come without a stiff price tag.

At a recent expo of of Bathroom ware in Las Vegas, Japanese company INAX showcased its new 'Satis' line. As well as looking sleek and modern, it has 'vortex flush', and is fully automated that means that it opens its lid on approach, plays music, flushes and closes its lid automatically according to your movements. Oh and it has 'double power deodorising', plus energy saving techology.

Anyway, if you have a spare US$4,800 - it could be yours.

Oh, and they make some interesting wall tiles as well.
