Not content with overhearing all your conversations in the kitchen, the internet of things is also prepared to monitor you while you use the bathroom.
Kohler has introduced the Numi 2.0 complete toilet integrated system. As they promote:
“Numi 2.0 will come equipped with embedded Amazon Alexa for easy voice control to active toilet features as well as Alexa commands such as checking weather, traffic, accessing news, etc.”
Numi will even be able to differentiate between different voices so Amazon can monitor you, your spouse and your kids separately!

SICK SICK SICK!!!
Oh yeah, we really need Alexa in the can!
Anybody who has Alexa in their home deserves to be spied on. Seriously, how lazy can you get to talk to a machine to do things for you like turn on the TV, turn on this, turn off that, etc. Then, how stupid can you be to not only allow an intruder into your home, but pay your money to buy it to be there.
My wife has one of those smart phones that I believe are smarter than those who own one. This intruder has something that listens to your conversations and occasionally says, “Sorry, I didn’t understand that.” This intruder has cause more than one “discussion” between us and she finally turned off that listening feature. At least when I’m around. I don’t want some device hearing my private conversations and it has been found out Google and I’m sure Apple have people actually listening to what goes on in the former privacy of people’s homes who are stupid enough to have paid for these intruders into their homes.
As a retired Industrial designer , the first thing that struck me was all the SHARP CORNERS to fall on or at least tear up your shins on ! Also agree with Tim above for the rest – all for $7 grand ? ! Not for me !
Well, all I have to say is this is just shi**y.
NO one is forcing anyone to buy these so don’t buy and thy will not last long if they cannot sell.
