Interactive Toilet Scares Kids into Pooping, Hopefully Not in Their Pants

Have you ever been scared to use the restroom because you're terrified something's going to pop out of the toilet and grab your arse? The Interactive Toilet does that to your children. Sort of.

From the looks of it, this toilet-seat mod is meant to potty-train and encourage kids by promising them a reward after they've done their business. The prize? The happy song, a high five, and some toilet paper! Frankly, this toilet would terrify me even at this age. I also have to wonder, won't this potty produce some sort of Pavlov's Dogs-esque side-effect? Hopefully when he's older, the kid won't poop his pants whenever he hears, "If you're happy and you know it clap your hands!" [Engadget]
