Your pooper is your password on the Internet of Shit

from here (image source)

A smart toilet that can recognize you by looking at your anus ranks high on my list of things I don't need. I don't need smart devices when traditional devices work just fine, I don't need questionable biometrics (are anuses really invariant over time or do certain activities throw the system off?), and I don't need a camera pointed where the sun don't shine and uploading images of my most private region to the cloud.

(Also, who knew you could get in trouble with the mature content police at Imgur over a computer drawn diagram from a research paper?)
