Bathtub? What talks?  I had to vote None.

Bathtub? What talks?

We have an intelligent bathtub.

It has a remote control right above the bathtub that you can operate and another remote control in the kitchen that you can also operate.

So if you want to draw a bath... you insure the inside of the tub has been cleaned out and you've placed the plug at the bottom in the drain hole.

Then you can use either of the remote controls and specify the temperature you want the bath to be and press "Auto fill". Water will immediately fill up in the tub until the amount you specify... 140, 150, 160, 170, 180 liters, etc. and press [Start].

About 3 minutes before the tub is filled up, it announces the bathtub is almost full. Then 3 minutes later, it says the bathtub is full.

Similarly, if you already have a full bathtub (or almost full bathtub), you can specify to heat the water up. Again, you specify the temperature and how much water you want to add (by the liter) so you could specify 20, 30, 40 liters to add. Again, when you press [Start] the remote control talks and says starting to warm up bath, it draws out the colder water in the center of the pipe from the tub, re-heats the water and then pumps it back into the tub again. Once it reaches the temperature you set, it notifies you that re-heating has completed. LOL

That is awfully complicated.  It would be easier to take a shower.

I forgot that my scale talks to me.  It says "Ow, get off, get off!"

Actually, it's not complicated at all. We have the temperature and volume of water we want to use preset... you can change both preset numbers up or down easily.

And if the preset values are what you want... just press [Fill bath] or [Heat bath] and it starts. If you want to prematurely stop it hit [Stop].

It beats the manual method of going into the bathroom, turning on the water, setting the right temperature and waiting until it fills up... and occasionally forgetting to turn the water off after you step out for a minute and it starts to overflow over the top! (* CHUCKLE *)
