The Self-Powering Bidet

Bidets! We love them! We think they’re great! But there’s one small problem: finding a power source for the thing. Many people don’t have power outlets by their toilets. I’m surprised and impressed to learn that there’s an actual answer to that: a bidet which powers itself.

Every time you flush the toilet the water pressure powers a generator and then charges a rechargeable battery.

So there you go. And for two hundred bucks. I think I should request an evaluation model.
