Quite possibly the most underrated yet most essential piece of tech showcased at CES 2012… is this next-level toilet. Unfortunately, it also reminds me how tech-backwards we are here in America: These are pretty much standard in public restrooms in Tokyo. An alarm clock for news junkies.

Starting bids are hoverboarding around the $2,700 ball park. All proceeds go towards the Michael J. Fox Foundation. And while I seem to have left that cash amount in my [...]
It’s been a long long while since I posted one of these but, in line with my 2011 resolution, I’m resurrecting Happy Links Friday.
