We’re used to smartwatches, but smart toilets are on the horizon. Researchers are developing toilets that can detect diseases, monitor blood pressure and even diagnose you for COVID. The toilets can use biometrics to tell different users apart.

if you’re laboring in the yard this labor day, some new help is on the way. Check out the new robot lawnmower from Segway. It uses GPS to work its way around your yard.
