Designed and developed in Japan, where they are commonplace. We have one, sold by a UK company but clearly Japanese in origin due to the Japlish instructions. Front (for ladies only) or rear wash, hot air drier, heated seat,  and air purifier.

What, no charming music to mask any accidental sounds?

The version for sale in Europe includes an automatic ceiling-mop.

There is a very old and crude joke about "automated toilets for ladies" that I shall refrain from telling as this is a family show.

I wonder if you could have a robot-wars style battle between on of those and a robotic sanitary towel bin.  This would of course break out at random while you're trying to hang your coat and bag on the back of the cubicle door.

YKYMAW... after reviewing the many and, in some cases, excellent available options, the series that appeals most for a binge is Series 1 of Out of Town with Jack Hargreaves.

You know those computer programs that can learn to play a game without being given the rules, just by observing the game being played?
Has anyone tried it with Mornington Crescent?

I think we've already seen the outcome, "The only winning move is not to play."  A house point if you can identify the (almost) quote.

It would be *enormous* fun to poison Google's AI/LLM by pointing it at any of ISIHAC's games, but Mornington Crescent would be an especially good choice.
