Rise of the robots


The problem solving principle of Occam’s razor tells us that the simplest solution is often the best. That seems to be the principle behind SmartNūdge – a stick-on robot arm that manually puts the toilet seat down while simultaneously saving your marriage and potential injury to your partner’s backside.

This simple, AA-battery powered unit with an extendable arm attaches to the front of the toilet tank. After 90 seconds, the arm extends giving the seat a little push and letting it fall back into place.

Unlike Australia’s own LooMate, every order will come with four ‘slam-stoppers’ which mount to the existing seat to ensure putting the toilet seat down is quiet and peaceful.

Unlike other toilet-seat-closing-solutions like the Brondell Swash 100 or the Kohler’s Numi toilet,  SmartNūdge allows end users to attach the device to their current toilet seat, instead of having to install a whole new system.

Hungover (or still drunk) and need to use the toilet to vomit? No problem, SmartNūdge designers have thought of that too. The seat won’t close on your head; an optional magnetic mounting kit is included so you can choose to remove the SmartNūdge whenever you want.

The SmartNūdge is still in the early stages of its Kickstarter campaign, but you can click here to support their good work.
