The Economist on High-Tech Toilets

      Comments Off on The Economist on High-Tech Toilets

Maybe The Economist is preparing a special report on Japan for their next issue. That might be why they have just posted on their web site a strangely unfocused column that seems to be mostly about the Tokyo dining scene, but which begins with a description of a high-tech toilet that is far more sophisticated than the one I described.

This one features a massive remote control that appears to have tremendous potential for evil if it should fall into the wrong hands.
