We know what you're thinking: The only thing missing from my ridiculously expensive, excessively tricked-out toilet is a USB port. Well it's time you welcomed your posh posterior to the 21st century, because Kohler's just released the second edition of its now $6,000 throne: the aptly named Numi Comfort Height. In addition to the aforementioned port, which will enable quicker software updates, the outfit has enhanced the commode with a Bluetooth receiver for streaming tunes to your tush; SD card reader for importing playlists and personalized welcome greetings; an accessible battery pack for flushing in the dark; and ambient lighting so you can keep the party going when it's time to take care of business. If that wasn't enough to elevate your toilet time, Kohler's lifted the seat to a more comfortable 18 inches, which it says "makes sitting down and standing up easier for most adults." So it still doesn't come in gold and you can't pay for it in Bitcoins, but those precious currencies have hit the skids anyway, right?

KOHLER Numi Comfort Height Toilet Upgrades Enhance User Experience

KOHLER, Wis. – April 19, 2013 – The desire to innovate runs deep at Kohler Co. and doesn't end when a new product is on the market. This is especially true when it comes to a high-profile product like the iconic Numi® toilet, which enjoyed a successful launch and global accolades unmatched in Kohler Co. history. As a result of that continued drive to innovate and improve the user experience, the KOHLER Numi toilet receives several enhancements: additional user-friendly features like a Bluetooth®* receiver, SD card for accessing personalized playlists, and ambient lighting.

"Consumer feedback on the Numi toilet allowed us to identify which additional upgrades were most important to users," says Brian Hedlund, Kohler senior product manager for toilets and bidets. "The new enhancements will allow for better enjoyment of the functionalities."

Kohler's most advanced toilet includes a sleek, interactive LCD touch-screen interface, built-in personalized bidet functionality and deodorizer, innovative dual-flush technology with 0.6 and 1.28 gallons per flush, intuitive auto-open and -close lid, and a heated seat and foot warmer.

In addition to the vast array of user options available on the Numi, several features have been added:
• Bluetooth® receiver for users to stream audio directly from mobile device

• Ambient lighting options allow users to choose to cycle through all seven colors, a color specific to each day of the week or a static color for the current use

• SD card for selection of a custom playlist or personalized welcome greeting

• Accessible battery pack supporting up to 100 flushes ensures that in the event of a power outage, Numi will continue to flush normally

• Service USB port located in rear of toilet offers easy software updates by service representatives
