Neorest 600

This toilet has everything: an integral warm water bidet seat with personal settings, self-cleaning ability, air-purification and auto-flush. The lid automatically opens when you approach it, and the lid will close and flushwhen you walk away.

I first encountered the Newrest 600 this weekend at Morimoto NYC and was instantly blown away. Check out the video below to see for yourself.

Even Ferrari Murakami posted one on his blog.
