Talk to your toilet

Consider the toilet.

When was the last time you spoke to it? I bet you never uttered even a fleeting remark of gratitude for all it does. Why would you? It’s a toilet, after all.

Kohler asked that question and kicked off CES 2024 with the PureWash E930. A voice-controlled bidet that will set you back $2,149. Talk about flushing your money away, eh? Okay, no more jokes.

Alongside finally getting to boss your toilet around, the PureWash E930 comes with a heated seat, remote control, adjustable water pressure, and various spray modes.

So, if you ever wanted to be the proud owner of a fancy, talking toilet, now’s your chance.


Talking points from Planet Internet

📱 Phone nostalgia: Remember Blackberry phones? Hearing the clickity-clack of the tiny keyboard from the back of the class. The good old days. Time to relive it. This case slips onto your iPhone to give it a Blackberry-inspired keyboard.  

🍞 Xbox Toaster: Filing this under things I didn’t know I needed until right now. Microsoft released a toaster inspired by the Xbox Series S. It even burns the Xbox logo onto your bread.

⌨️ Future Keyboards: Microsoft is updating its keyboard for the first time in over 30 years. It’s been a good run, but change is in the air. Like the Windows key, Microsoft will add a dedicated “Copilot key“ to pull up the company’s AI assistant.
