A toilet-cleaner company got the title ‘Fizzy’ when it released its first product: a toilet that could help you get your butt out of the shower.
The toilet-remover Fuzzy was unveiled at the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos on Wednesday.
It features a patented technology called the Fluid-Density Fluidic Nanosensor, which can sense how much liquid is inside the toilet and use that information to determine if it’s dirty.
The Fluidicity System can sense liquid within the toilet, and then estimate how much is there.
The toilet-clothing company, Fuzzys, said it can measure liquid pressure, and “detect where it’s closest to the water tank.”
Fuzzys founder and chief executive Chris Jones said that, with the help of the Fluctity Sensor, Fizzys could use “the same technology that’s in your toilet bowl to detect when you’ve left the toilet bowl and get rid of that residue.”
Fizzys said the Flutter is available in three colors, and can be used in the toilet of any toilet or bathtub, and is available as a gel toilet flush or a “bulk toilet” that can be reused.
Jones told reporters that the technology is being used to “improve efficiency and reduce waste.”
“In terms of waste reduction, it can be very effective in reducing the amount of water in your waste stream,” he said.
“We believe it’s the future of our product line.”
Jones said the company will release a second toilet-saver Fuzzies product this year.
“It’s just a one-off, we have an initial release in March that is intended for people who need an extra boost,” he told reporters.
“We will be working on other Fuzzles.”
Jones also revealed that the company is in talks with the American toilet manufacturer, and that it will soon have an Android app that can detect the presence of water and determine whether it needs to be flushed or not.
Fuzzies said it was not aware of any other companies using this technology, and said it is not seeking patent protection from the Flustek company.
“I would say that Fuzziness has been very much in the forefront of this,” said Jones.
“I think that’s one of the reasons why we are in the position we are.”
The technology has been used in many industries over the years, including in the automotive industry, where it was used to reduce fuel consumption.
Fizzy has raised over $100 million in venture funding from companies including Softbank and Google Ventures, with a $40 million investment in the company in April 2016.
