    Saw this advertised on TV a few minutes ago. Behold, the Bowl Light. Call now, operators are standing by!

    Seriously, whatever possesses people to dream up stuff like this???

    (Be ready to nuke the obnoxious autoplay video in the upper right corner of the web page; it's loud.)

    Good Lord... probably its market is intended for small children or very old people. But what really bothered me was that they're using tuba music in the intro!

    Oh, is that what that noise was? I though it was the sound of... umm, nevermind.

    I am sure it was Japanese inspired. They are always into going to extremes with their toilets. Shouldn't every toilet should have a control panel? :p

    I think they would make the perfect Christmas gift for that special person.

    Shouldn't a toilet's control panel use a flat, easy to clean glass touchscreen instead of so many buttons and knobs where bacteria and dirt can easily hide?

    What's wrong?
    I have done several good designs. "It's practical, effective, reliable, cheap to make, fills a need, and you can't market it because nobody will bet their money to get it manufactured.":( On the other hand, put some LEDs in a toilet and we're on major TV networks, all around the planet!:)

    Take that, engineering degree!:mad:

    Why don't you design a mirrored ball to go along with the lighted toilet. Have it play "Disco Inferno" when it comes on.:D

    Or they could make this functional by using UV lights to kill bacteria, I better patent this.

    Maybe "Some Like It Hot" would be a better choice of music :D...

    If he had a toilet light he might have seen it coming.

    just UV? I think you'd need to nuke the thing to get rid of all the bacteria.

    Because I didn't design the lighted toilet. Besides, somebody told me to get my mind out of the sewer, and I agreed.
