The Fully Wired Watercloset

Abstract:
"For me, it doesn't take much of a leap to say that's where we're moving," said Minnesota-based Jack Uldrich, (president of the) NanoVeritas Group, who is giving a talk called "The Next Big Thing is Really Small" at this month's Kitchen/Bath Industry Show in Chicago, the granddaddy of conventions for bathroom innovators. "Companies are making fog-proof mirrors, nanocoatings that are mildew resistant, self cleaning textiles and toilets," he said.

Computer chips and sensing technology are getting progressively smaller, he said, which makes them easier to use in the bathroom. And because nanosensors are so sophisticated, they will one day be used in toothbrushes to detect proteins in saliva that might indicate disease -- or just bad breath. They might also be used in toilets to test waste for proteins or other substances.
