High Tech Throne
I am getting quite used to the everday luxuries of the high tech capital of the world. Unlike the US and Western Europe, innovation has reached the bathroom in Japan. Heated toilet seats, water jets and a choice of soundtracks (including bird chirping and water falls) are all intended to make your bathroom experience more pleasurable. Japan is already on its way to making intelligent toilets that can monitor body weight, blood sugar etc. Soon there will be no need to head to the clinic for health check-ups. All you have to do is make a short trip to the nearest throne. Unfortuantely things aren't looking all that rosy from a lab technician's perspective. Losing your job due to outsourcing is bad enough, let alone being made redundant by a commode!
