The Kohler Numi High Tech Toilet

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Kohler’s Numi is the toilet of the future, with a self-opening lid and self-cleaning bidet.  It has a sleek modern design that some detractors  say resembles a trash more than a conventional toilet.  The Numi includes a touch panel with adjustable controls that allow you to customize both water pressure and temperature, while heating elements keep both your seat and fee toasty.  Musical atmosphere is provided by a built-in speaker that connects to an external docking station. 

See the Numi promotional video in this YouTube video, which was filmed in the iconic Stahl house in Los Angeles.  You can find out more about the Numi on the Kohler website.
