Automatic opening-and-closing toilet bowl lid


Automatic Toilet Lid
This is another one of those strange Japanese inventions/contraptions. If you’re forever getting moaned at for leaving the toilet seat up (blokes) or down (woman, not that us blokes ever complain) the this Automatic opening-and-closing toilet bowl lid may just help you out.

The auto bog lid (the offical title was too long) detects via a sensor when a would be depositor approaches and opens accordingly. When the operator has done the business and leaves, the lid automatically closes (as if by magic).

toiletlidsWhat would be cool is if it knew what you wanted to a do, a no.1 or no.2 and raise or lower the seat as well, it would also need to identify between the sexes which I’m sure it could do if it had a built in webcam and facial recognition software. Then it would need to be programmable so you could tell it if you prefered the seat up or down when you need to talk to the big white telephone after a heavy saturday night, which it could detect by the fact you are approaching it on your knees.

I think I should get back to work now :)

at that point, shouldn’t we just buy and install a urinal?

The Considerate Seat (available on Amazon) also does this and is only about $35.00. I’m waiting for something like the Brondell Breeze with the considerate seat function, now that would be perfect!!!!

P.S. The considerate seat does not self open, only self closes, I also found the Harmony seat that also self closed when you flush the toilet….

I have thought about this product for a while in which way i could get the sit to open and close depending on which sex you are.Guess what i figured it out.Looking for investors once the Patton has been placed.

This would be a good thing for everyone. When you don’t close the lid down on a toilet, mold spores shoot out of the bowl. I know not very many people know if this. A toilet is the dirtiest thing in your house. Besides, it looks so ugly with a toilet lid up. It’s disgusting.
