Fresh Out of the Water Closet

OK, all you weekenders, get your minds out of the gutter and into the toilet, because here's all the latest potty news. First of all, there's a new toilet seat by Aspidor that uses an induction fan with a charcoal filter to take away that, uh, aroma that finds itself wafting away from the water closet. The thing reacts to body warmth, turning on its little fan when you sit on it. And, you don't even have to plug it in, because it has a rechargeable battery. It's $349.

Speaking of toilet seats, there s reportedly a heated toilet seat craze sweeping the United States. Toilet maker Todo, a Canadian company with factories in Mexico, announced it will open up a new manufacturing facility to keep up with the burgeoning demand for the warmed-up seats, which are enormously popular in Japan. A heated toilet seat, you say? Don't knock it til you ve tried it. Some of your favorite Gizmodo writers use one every day, and that 98.6-degree seat sure makes a cold room seem a lot warmer early on a winter's morning.
