skitzorat Posted September 29, 2021 Share Posted September 29, 2021 (edited) What does your poo say about you? Are you ready to share your shit with the govt? Smart toilet innovators believe the loo could become the ultimate health monitoring tool. Grego believes her product -- which analyses and tracks stool samples and sends the data to an app -- will provide "information related to cancer and many chronic diseases." Researchers at the Stanford School of Medicine have been working on technology that can analyze feces (including "stool dropping time") and track the velocity and color of urine, as well as test it. According to the Wall Street Journal, the researchers have partnered with Izen, a Korean toilet manufacturer that's developed a scanner that can recognize the physical characteristics of whoever is sitting on the toilet -- or, in the words of the researchers, "the distinctive features of their anoderm" (the skin of the anal canal). While many people are ready for the smart toilet era, Stanford's study of user acceptance found that the "least favored module is analprint." https://tech.slashdot.org/story/21/09/24/2128227/are-you-ready-to-share-your-analprint-with-big-tech Edited September 29, 2021 by skitzorat Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
