Your toilet needs an upgrade

Researchers at Stanford University in California have been hard at work developing the things that are going to make your life better... a smart toilet!  

Apparently, this thing will recognize your butt and be able to monitor your health by analyzing your waste. Ok, that's a little creepy, actually.

Check out the story, diagrams and pictures in this Business Insider article. The toilet has a camera pointing up and watching as you sit down. Uh, nope!

Thankfully, these aren't close to hitting the market any time soon. I get that these are good things to measure to keep us healthy, but I don't think I like the idea of a butt database in a cloud server somewhere.

Good luck not thinking about this next time you visit the bathroom.
