New smart toilet offers 'fully-immersive experience'

Smart toilets are here, offering a "fully-immersive experience" for people to carry out their business from the bathroom throne.

Complete with speakers, ambient lighting and heated seats, luxury bathroom manufacturer Kohler says its Numi 2.0 Intelligent Toilet offers "personalised cleansing" for the discerning customer.

And as a bonus, Alexa is built into the toilet so you can drop beats and ask questions without using your hands.

Too lazy to manually flush? Ask and Amazon's personal assistant will do it for you.

"The lighting features on Kohler's flagship intelligent toilet have been upgraded from static colours to dynamic and interactive multi-coloured ambient and surround lighting," Kohler's press release says.

"Paired with the new speakers in the Numi toilet, these lighting and audio enhancements create a fully-immersive experience for homeowners.

"Amazon Alexa built into the product provides simple voice control of Numi's features and access to tens of thousands of skills, as well as a seamless integration of voice control into the bathroom.

Other technology offered by the company includes the PureWarmth Heated Toilet Seat, which offers three temperature settings for ultimate bottom-warming comfort.

Costing well over $10,000, the Numi Intelligent Toilet will be available later this year.
