iPhone software allows you to run a bath !

The Bath-o-matic software for iPhone is available free from Apple's popular App Store, but users must also pay £4,000 for the technology at home. They will then be able to select the temperature, depth and fragrance of the water and even how many bubbles in the bath. The software means the phone can send instructions to a set of high-tech taps on a bath tub that can control the temperature, pressure and draining of the water so that the bath will be ready when arriving home.

Unique Automation, the London-based company behind the device, showed off its wares at a trade show this week. A spokesman said: "At the touch of a button, Bath-o-matic fills the bath to perfection - even adding bubbles and perfumes.

"Bringing full automation to the bathroom at last, this technological breakthrough offers energy and water savings plus flooding and scalding prevention."

Sharon Munday, a 27 year-old secretary, viewed the Bath-o-matic demonstration at the CEDIA Expo 2009 at the ExCeL centre in London. "It really shows off just how the iPhone is becoming the ultimate remote control for everything in the home," she said.

"If I had £4,000 spare I'd get one. It would be perfect for me as I have a 20 minute drive home from the office and could set it to run as I leave and hop in as soon as I got home. That would be absolute bliss."

A shower version of the software is coming soon.

Okay, now I am really going to run out and install a $4000 dollar bath system so it can be remote controlled. Waste of brain cells.

Actually, price tag for this bathtub should be much higher, like 100K so even people with tons of money would not waste it on this thing. It is cool idea but it should stay just that.
