The Toilet of the future

Toilets are equipped with mini-laboratories, which produce chemical analysis of the faeces and, if found to deviate from the norm, they recommend the owner to see a doctor. But this is not the only innovation in sanitary ware : under the toilet rim we find sterilising UV lamps, providing 100% protection against harmful microorganisms.

David May One other comment, keep in mind 2030 is only 9 years away. It still takes a bit of time to develop and market new products. 9 Years would be pretty fast, even for today.

David May Agree with some qualifications. Example, the bathroom will have to be able to identify the user with certainty. The best way would be for near instant DNA analysis. We may be able to get to near instant DNA analysis by 2030.

Colin Cullis Would it not be fair to assume it would also process the waste rather than simply added it to potable water and send it on its way. If building will be high density then the option for treatment and use on the outside of a buildings forrest could sustain the plants while saving on extra transport and processing of human waste.

Christopher Garrard Colin Cullis, most wastewater is processed and used as fertiliser today, and some of it is used to produce energy as well. We would certainly see expansions in this.

Tim Suetens In the future, toilet paper will be replaced by revolutionary 'three seashells' technology. How this works, no one knows. It just does.
