LAS VEGAS — Tech is invading the bathroom.
Answering the call of Mother Nature is getting an upgrade, according to a high-tech toilet unveiled here at CES 2018, but it’s going to cost you plenty.
Japan-based Toto debuted its Neorest NX2, an $11,000 tech marvel that will open automatically as you approach, has an instantly heated seat and boasts an aerated water cleanse to rinse yourself off when you have finished.
It also features a warm- air dryer.
And don’t even think about having to clean it. The NX2 has a built-in ultraviolet light that breaks down any substances that may have stuck to the bowl and also has a deodorizer built in.
It will be available in the third quarter of 2018, the company said.
The Keecker Multimedia Robot brings the entertainment to you — no matter where you are in your home.
The $1,800 voice-enabled multimedia marvel, with a passing resemblance to R2-D2, is a media center that comes to you when summoned and can project a 720-p image of up to 102 inches on a wall or ceiling.
The robot, which has a six-hour battery life, comes pre-installed with Google’s Android TV, meaning that you can watch Netflix, HBO and YouTube in any room of the house, among other services. It is available now.
Figuring out the precise nutrient levels in you smoothie will be a lot easier with the NutriBullet Balance.
The $179 Bluetooth-enabled smart blender allows you to carefully track the nutritional content of every smoothie you make.
An app saves your favorite recipes and allows you to set and track nutrition goals — even helping you create a personalized wellness plan and maintain a shopping list. It is now in stores.
It’s not exactly like lying next to a fellow human, but the Somnox robotic pillow does mimic human breathing patterns to help you sleep.
The company behind the $700 packing-peanut-shaped pillow claims that your body will subconsciously match the pace of your breaths.
It is expected to go on sale in September.
