We really have come far with our toilet technology since the now archaic chamber pot. The advent of reliable sewage systems for big cities and widely accessible indoor plumbing aren't as old as you may think they are. Sure, in their time it was a huge step forward in hygiene, but now it's something we take for granted. So, the next time you complain about the pink tile from the 70's in your bathroom, think of the chamber pot.
Flush toilet technology was fast going, and new ways of removing and controlling waste were cropping up every year since its inception. So, what does this mean for the future? Heated seats and automatic cleaning, automatic flushing, no doubt, but wait, there's more: built in radio and mp3 jacks for your listening pleasure aren't just for airports anymore.
