One of the most recent and impactful development of toilet is the innovation of a bidet toilet seat. While bidet is quite an aged invention in the Europe back in the 17th century, the bidet being a separate fixture from the toilet itself is quite a nuisance in terms of practicality and plumbing and thus not easily adopted worldwide. It is until early 1980s that Japan introduce an electronic and integrated bidet on the toilet that this innovation became more practical.
