A high-tech loo that provides an instant health check for its users every time they answer a call of nature has been created by Japanese scientists. The toilet analyses users' urine, temperature, blood pressure and weight every time they urinate. And, in a matter of seconds it produces a wellbeing report which is displayed on a wall-mounted screen, The Sun reported. The data can also be transferred to the user's computer and sent to their doctor for further scrutiny, say its makers.

Made by Toto, the so-called Intelligence Toilet is the latest in a long line of high-tech conveniences to come out of Japan. It is capable of storing data of up to five different people and retails for 500,000 yen (3,800 pounds). Others include posterior shower jets, hot-air dryers, perfume bursts, heated seats and noise-masking audio effects for the easily embarrassed.
