$6400 Toilet Will Heat Your Rear and Play Music

A faint rush of water, a starry sky, one glass home perched above sparkling city lights, soft piano music, light glimmering across some mysterious object (laser printer? paper shredder? mini fridge?), more sparkling cityscape (now hazy), a woman in peach dress and gold heels crossing her legs, another shot of this mysterious object, some man in a dark suit fixing his cufflinks, then back to mysterious object, which opens like a Lamborghini – all this occurs in the first 30 seconds of Kohler’s video for its advanced new toilet. It’s called the Numi. It costs $6400.

The Numi’s lid opens automatically. Other features include a heated seat, a touchpad remote, ambient lighting, built-in speakers, an adjustable bidet with dryer, as well as a charcoal-filter deodorizer designed to annihilate any animal smells. Kohler aims to bring us “the finest in personal comfort and cleansing.”

Slated for a fall 2011 release, the Numi has already got some attention. Gizmodo’s Sam Biddle blasted rap during his own test run. He became hooked: “I didn’t want to leave toilet land and return to a life in which hot air can’t be blown up my ass with a touchpad swipe. A lesser world.”

The $6400 price doesn’t include installation fees. TC mark

    Very intense promo video. You could cut the tension in the room with a knife. Who will use the toilet first–the man or the woman? Or will they use it simultaneously? Does the Numi have that option?

    This thing better be the first thing my dad buys at the Kohler employees' sale, or I'm disowning him.

    For $6400, I'd buy as many cases of Four Loko as I possibly could. I don't need a $6400 toilet to throw up in.
