In my opinion, some things don’t need to be upgraded, like toilets. Apparently Inax doesn’t agree. They’ve created Satis, a new toilet currently only found in Japan that is accessible via an Android app. With the app you can control all of the toilet’s functions, including jets of water and hot air that come from below. Unfortunately, so can everyone else.
All the toilets are equipped with the same “0000” Bluetooth pin, making it possible for anyone with the My Satis App in range of the toilet able to control it no matter who’s using the toilet. The implications should be pretty obvious.
The problem has been brought to Inax’s attention three times since it was discovered in June, but it’s only now getting public attention and nothing has been done to correct the problem.
Why do we need high tech toilets? What’s wrong with the toilets we have now? I blame this whole thing on paranoid germaphobes. People lived just fine in even worse sanitary conditions than most of us experience today!
