IoT = Internet of Toilets?

I was in a meeting the other day where people had a completely serious discussion about “the Connected Bathroom,” featuring smart soap dispensers that know when they’re empty, and “just-in-time” toilet paper delivery. Really? I wanted to say “that project will require a lot of back-end development,” but the filter kicked in.

For the record, I have successfully refilled my soap containers many times without the Internet. Somehow, I can tell when it’s empty just by looking at it. I must have special skills.
