Consumer Electronics Show: Newziro Bidet

January 6, 2011 |  9:30 pm

A bidet isn't something you might expect at the Consumer Electronics Show, but here it is. Korean manufacturer Newziro has brought us the GMW-1000 Bidet with Instantaneous Heating System.

Not only is the heating immediate, but the contraption also aerates the water it uses and it has an air-drying feature and an automatic deodorizer to "remove unpleasant smells."

It's not a stand-alone fixture but a module that fits onto a standard toilet, replacing the seat and tapping in to existing water lines. It retails for between $300 and $400.

Now all you need is a screwdriver, a wrench and the courage to use the darn thing.
