Japanese hi-tech toilet attendant

With Japan’s more realistic robots veering well away from the all important confines of cuteness, a motorway connected company has commissioned a contraption to counter such concerns.

However, with an expected price tag of 3.5 million yen when it’s released in the next year or so, it’ll require an awful lot of spent pennies to pay for it.
