Have fun analyzing your poop from the comfort of home

The future of feces.

Do you ever take a second after taking a dump to really think about your poop? Feces are way more complicated than your typical ponder on the throne. One toilet is even hoping to put a smart spin on defecation.

Introducing the Ideaing Smart Toilet: the latest gadget from tech companies to analyze a bodily function that Fitbits can’t track—pooping. At its core, the bowl is a “smart health device,” according to Ideaing’s website

By using the web-enabled app, those that grace the seat with their bottoms can get analysis of “the content of their excrement including color, fiber content, weight, taste, blood sugar, and BAC.” Basically, a bunch of shit that you never really thought about.

Oh, and if you’re interested, there’s even a live video feed at the bottom. Don’t forget to glam up the seat with one of the toilet’s various customizations available, as seen in the picture below. Cheetah print: so cute!

If those fun features weren’t enough, there’s even a social media component built in. You can share your poop results with your online networks. Open poop talk is the best kind of poop talk. 

This toilet of the future comes at quite the cost. It’s just under $25,000. I’m not sure what’s more surprising: the actual price or the fact that a man named Stuart Campbell has already purchased one and left the comment, “I got one of these and it’s changed my life!”

For all that it offers, the shittiest part of this piece of tech is its steep price.
