Man kann an dieser Stelle tausend Witze über fäkalvergessliche Smartphonejunkies machen, oder darauf hinweisen, dass die Teile für inkontinente Mitmenschen vielleicht gar nicht so doof sind… Naaaah, bring the jokes.
Japanese company Triple W Japan has invented Dfree, a device that fits on your underwear and tracks your bowel movements. The company says the device will come in handy for people who suffer from faecal incontinence, or those that just need more time to find or go to the bathroom. The device, unveiled last week at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) on the outskirts of Tokyo, is not yet on sale but could be on the market by spring next year.
"This device predicts faecal excretion. The device goes on your stomach and uses ultrasonic waves to monitor your internal organs and sends the data to smartphones to be displayed," said Ryohei Ochiai, of Triple W Japan's Solution Development.
