Ready for a new toilet...

"Kohler said the Numi toilet, which will soon go on sale for $6,390, features minimalist design as well as a heated seat with adjustable height and a charcoal-filter deodorizer, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Wednesday."

Toto, the Japanese company, has been making WASHLET toilets and WASHLET seats for existing toilets for 30 years. Other Japanese companies also make them. They do the same thing as the Kohler Numi and most of them cost a lot less.
I have had one of these seats for about three years and dread leaving home without it. It isn't a gimmick. I'm not the guy demonstrating this:

That was hilarious! But(t), the time that thingie is out and cleansing doesn't seem adequate. I suspect with all those buttons, you can adjust the time period, yes/no? The other question, if one does not want to wait for the dryer function, then what. TP? Pull up pants over dripping bum? Ewww....

the STOP button right away but it was out of view.
If you don't use the dryer you use a little TP to soak up the water.
The majority of toilets in Japan are of this type. Of course, the Japanese are noted for their cleanliness: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilets_in_Japan

What crap!!
We became, for a few years, a Japanese partnership company. I never went to Japan, but we had a lot of Japanese workers in our Silicon Valley campus. One particularly gee-ross issue that came up more than a few times were the Japanese workers who were unable to adapt to regular US style, or non-squat, toilets. They didn't know how to sit down, so stood up on the toilet seat rim and squatted over the bowl. No problem if jes a normal bowel movement, but if they had the green-apple shouts along with a ass fulla gas, they proceeded to hose down the entire back wall of the stall with shower of crap, thereby rendering the entire restroom unusable. This was unbelievably gross and not a rare occurance. Worse, none of the sumbitches ever fessed up and notified housekeeping, so it was the next poor slob to walk into the restroom who hadda try and keep his lunch down and call in the illegals.

I've used one of these seats for several years now. I seldom wait for the dryer to finish but even a few seconds helps a lot. I still use a little TP, but much less than before. That toilet hasn't gotten clogged (such as from the TP) at all in the last few years.

horror that started this thread. They are meant to cleanse, period, not to show off how much money you can waste.
Inexpensive add-ons "bidets" are also available, involving just a few tubes and simple installation; not sure how well they work. Meantime many use FLUSHABLE !!! wipes. The other kind will clog your toitie.
New house construction sometimes features urinals and bidets. Dunno how much that raises the price, but I suspect not beyond the reach of an owner thinking ahead to resale value, not to mention current convenience and aesthetics.
This thread reminds me of the private toilet of the olde-tyme Sultan that I saw in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul. On a rail alongside the squat toilet were hung a row of exquisite embroidered linen towels! Mirabile dictu! (The guide didn't say whether the Sultan had to wipe himself, or had somebody to do it.)
