Kohler unveiled a $7,000 toilet called the Numi 2.0 at CES in Las Vegas this week.
LAS VEGAS — Despite the robots, virtual reality video games and helicopter that looked like something straight from the movie “Avatar” at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show here — production company Kohler still managed to get the attention of convention-goers with nothing other than a toilet.

Kohler unveiled the improved version of their previous Numi model this week at CES, which also features a heated seat, as well as mood “the mood.”
“The bathroom is a hardworking space,” Allis said. “People usually start and end their day, and we know what people want of the extra amenities.”
