Ready for smart bathrooms? Kohler unveils app-controlled bathtub
In a Kohler future, you step into a bathtub controlled by an app and use a toilet or sink without ever touching it with your hands.
Most notable is the Stillness Bath, which attempts to mimic the experience of a luxury spa right in your home.
The tub uses a combination of fog, lighting and smells generated through essential oils to "relax the mind, soothe the body and renew the spirit," according to Kohler.
A version of the bath called the "Infinity Experience" will fill the tub with water from the bottom and flow over on to a wood moat to create relaxing sounds.
That luxury tub comes at a luxury price, though. It starts at $6,198, while the Infinity Experience costs nearly $16,000. It launches next year.
Among some of the other ways Kohler is attempting to smarten up your bathroom:
- Smart toilet. The company's Innate intelligent toilet will open and close automatically, and boasts a heated seat and personal bidet. And it's also got a remote
- Touchless faucets. Meant for homes and other residential spaces, the faucets include sensors allowing them to automatically turn on without touching the handles.
