Scientists develop smart toilet that can identify users based on bum print

Scientists have developed a smart toilet that can recognise who is using it based on their bum print.


Researchers at the Stanford School of Medicine say that the scanner can recognise the “unique anal print” of different people.

The device even contains a camera inside the toilet bowl that matches the waste to the toilet user and provides them with data.

The smart toilet can even calculate “the flow rate and volume of urine, using computer vision as a uroflowmeter”.

Smart toilets are growing in popularity and can even be life-saving as they can identify ailments such as bowel cancer and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

Vik Kashyap, the founder of the smart toilet company Toi Labs, told The Guardian newspaper: “It’s essentially understanding when someone has abnormal patterns.

“It’s capable of documenting those patterns and providing reports that can be used by physicians to help in the treatment of a variety of conditions.”
