Otohime "Sound Princess"


Toilet noises can be embarrassing, but what's a shy girl to do besides repeatedly flushing in situ? Japan's answer is the Otohime (pronounced "oto-hee-may"), also known as the "Sound Princess" - an electronic "flush" that saves face as well as water.

Japanese women can be exceedingly modest when it comes to the characteristic sounds of nature's call, regardless of the fact that they are either alone in their home's bathroom or among their own kind in a more public washroom setting.

The Japanese seem to always be on the forefront of toilet tech. They're usually the Murst! to come out with this sort of thing.
