Technology in Action: The Talking John!
This is from an e-mail I get everyday of bizarre news. Now I could use this at home, especially the commentary on "considering sitting down next time" for the boys in my house who have less than stellar aim.
TODAY'S BIZARRE FILE:
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - If you're making a visit to the john in Amsterdam,
do not be alarmed if the toilet begins speaking to you while you're taking
care of business. The talking toilets may tell you how bad smoking is for
your health, or about the futility of war, or even yell at you about hygiene
and cleanliness. The first such toilets installed in a central Amsterdam
cafe Thursday. "You might consider sitting down next time," the toilet told
a male Reuters reporter politely in a female robot voice. The next user was
told that "The last visitor did not take heed of basic rules of hygiene."
Depending on circumstances, the toilet might also remind you to wash your
hands or ask to lift the seat."Your eyes beheld my unformed substance. In your book were written all the days that were formed for me, when none of them as yet existed" - Psalm 139:16 (NRSV)
