“The new pub­lic toi­let is like a five-star ho­tel.”

Fifty pub­lic toi­lets in Jing’an district will be con­verted into “in­tel­li­gent toi­lets” this year, Shang­hai Morn­ing Post re­ported Wed­nes­day. Dif­fer­ent from tra­di­tional pub­lic toi­lets, which of­ten have un­pleas­ant smells and un­san­i­tary en­vi­ron­ments, the first in­tel­li­gent toi­let on Xikang Road has sur­prised res­i­dents with its clean, high-tech fa­cil­i­ties. Toi­let users will re­ceive a free piece of toi­let paper af­ter al­low­ing their faces to be scanned in front of a fa­cial recog­ni­tion sys­tem. The new toi­lets also have in­stalled real-time de­tec­tion de­vices to mon­i­tor odors and dis­pense an au­to­matic de­odor­izer.
