Replacement Toilet Lids and Seats - Smart toilet cancels embarrassing noises - This Old Toilet 800-658-4521
Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Japan is known as the most polite nation on Earth, and that extreme politeness extends to all aspects of life, including bathroom etiquette.
Many public toilets feature a wall-mounted device that, when pressed, creates a sound that masks that of urination. However, Japanese homeware brand Lixil has partnered with instrument maker Roland to address the sensitive issue of bathroom noises.
They’ve created a new device called the “Sound Decorator”, which, unlike current solutions that only try to mask noises by emitting another sound, generates a pattern that makes the original sound less audible altogether.
There is no word yet on whether the technology will expand to include the infinitely more embarrassing noises produced by gas and defecation.
