We've rounded up 15 of the best gadgets that add a high-tech spin to your water closet.

Bathroom mirror TV

The Eclipse Television Mirror embeds an LCD TV behind a two-way bathroom mirror.

When the TV is off, you can't see it at all. Turn it on using the included remote and voilà! Watch Eastenders while brushing your teeth.

The 15in TV Mirror starts at $1,326 (£875); add another $150 to $300 (£100 to £200) for the 20in unit.

Tired of turning the tap on and off? This 'intelligent tap' from iHouse uses facial recognition to identify you automatically and adjust the water temperature and flow to your tastes.

Oral-B Toothbrush with wireless remote

Sure, there's plenty of electric toothbrushes around, but how many of them come with their own wireless remote?

The Oral B ProfessionalCare SmartSeries 5000 has a 'SmartGuide' remote that displays details on your brushing times, pressure, and other oral hygiene essentials.

It doubles as a bathroom clock, too. Currently only available in the US, the rechargeable SmartSeries 5000 even alerts you when it's time to replace the brush head.

Eto-oto iPhone toilet sound app

Embarrassed by the sounds you make in a public toilet? There's an app for that.

Polygon Magic's eco-oto plays a toilet-flushing sound for 30, 60, 90, or 120 seconds.

It conserves water because you're not flushing the toilet to mask nature's orchestra.

It costs just 50p in the App Store. And in case you're wondering, 'eco-oto" is an English-Japanese abbreviation for 'ecological sound'.

Toto Neorest 550

The Japanese are the undisputed masters of toilet tech, and nowhere is their potty prowess more evident than in the Toto Neorest 550, a luxury john that plays sound effects, such as a babbling brook or waves crashing on a beach, to mask your body's natural cacophony.

Its lid opens and closes automatically, and the device even has a programmable nightlight.

LED colour-changing shower head with remote

Turn every shower into a dazzling light show. When the water is cold, the green LEDs shine.

As the water warms, your shower turns blue. It goes red when things get steamy hot. The remote lets you quickly change the lighting to suit your mood.

Priced at £8.60 on the Chinavasion electronics site, this LED shower head is colour therapy on the cheap.

Euphonia wireless headset

Headphones, digital music players and long, luxurious baths don't play well together, right? Not always.

Euphonia is an accessory for spa-maker Bain Ultra's line of upscale tubs. The waterproof Bluetooth wireless headset lets you listen to tunes while soaking. You can select BainUltra's pre-programmed music playlist, or create your own.

TV tub

Uber-hip designer Karim Rashid has designed this all-in-one TV-tub unit for the Saturn Bath Company of Korea.

Soak your troubles away in this modernistic, white oval tub while catching up on Coronation Street.

The LCD TV is waterproof, naturally.

Steamist AudioSense

Bring your iPod to the steam room! The Steamist Total Sense home spa has an optional AudioSense music feature with a wall-mounted dock for your MP3 player.

Coco Bidet with remote

Brits have never embraced the bidet, a dismissal that hasn't sat well with the rest of the hygienic world.

After all, nothing cleans the nether regions quite like a splash of warm water.

The Coco 6035 R is the Bentley of bidets with an infrared warm air dryer, deodoriser, remote control, and more. Sure, it costs £450, but think of the money you'll save on toilet paper.

Toto Talk

Yes, a toilet that talks! Want news, stock quotes, even your fortune? Toto Talk's lid moves up and down as a computerised voice speaks to you.

A quote from the 'Brown Nosing' feature: "Master, the way you wash your hands is so sexy".

Something tells me that Toto's engineers need to get out more. Not a shipping product, the zany Toto Talk is on display in Tokyo's Shiodome. Watch it talk here.

Heated toilet seat

What's worse than plopping your naked bum on chilly porcelain?

The UltraTouch electrically heated toilet seat uses a 12 volt sealed thermal circuit to stay 20 to 25 degrees above room temperature.

It's also treated with an antimicrobial agent to resist the growth of bacteria, fungi, molds, and mildew. Now if it would only clean itself.
