There's someone out there who will apparently buy this:

[Warning: One S-bomb, which oddly is somewhat appropriate given the context]

Yeah bro, this thing STARTS at $8,500 and goes up to $11,500. For that kind of money, Kohler will sell you a square box with an automatic lid and seat so you can do your business.

For the average family's budget for a used car (who can afford new these days?), you can scroll through social media for 30 minutes on the toilet.

From The Verge:

That means a bidet that can wash both front and back bits, UV lights for cleaning said bidet, and control over the temperature, position, and pressure of the bidet. It's also got a bowl that gets automatically misted to minimize poo residue, auto flushing, auto deodorizing, a heated seat, an air dryer for your tush, and an emergency backup flush for... I guess when you really go to town?

All those features are controlled by a handheld remote (you'll have to clean that yourself), and the integrated LED and surround sound features are managed by the Kohler Konnect app.

Here's a demo of the remote:

Kohler hasn't said anything about support for Matter, so beyond interoperability, with Alexa, you'll have to get crafty if you want this toilet to work with other smart home systems and their automations.

You don't even have to go to some fancy shop to buy this throne of kings. You can purchase it with Prime delivery over on Amazon.

...if you really need a toilet that can play a sick beat as you do a sick bowel movement, the Kohler Numi 2.0 Smart Toilet is available...

Kohler made an ad with the toilet out in the desert because why not?

The Numi 2.0 wasn't the only thing available at CES. Kohler has a whole lineup in its "multi-sensory showing experience" for rich people who want everything in their bathroom to be connected to the internet.

Other companies tried their luck at becoming the next big thing with a foldable screen:

A keyboard for people who think their iPhone needs to be EVEN BIGGER:

Transparent screens from Samsung:

A car that deploys a personal helicopter:

And a freaky toothbrush for people who hate spending more than 10 seconds brushing their teeth.

But probably the biggest thing at the conference that will actually be applicable to the average person was AI. This is Rabbit, a little personal AI you carry around in your pocket with the goal of decluttering and simplifying the hassle of searching through apps on a phone.

Kohler better watch out - if AI devices make it so we're not addicted to scrolling through our phones as much, the time we spend in the bathroom is going to seriously decrease!
