This autonomous, integrated toilet seat and lid, bubble blower is guaranteed to harass into submission any errant users leaving the seat up or wet.

Upon registering misuse of the toilet seat, the unit uses its range finder to track large, receding objects. If the distance becomes greater than one meter, strike mode is activated.

If not already vertical the toilet seat is raised. Simultaneously, a wetted nylon line on the inside of the ring is pulled across the opening, creating a soapy film. The lid blower expands the film to a half-meter diameter blister before the line wipes back, completing the attack bubble.

Lastly, the blower propels the dripping, pulsating sphere towards the target, which will shortly experience what it's like sitting down on a wet seat or cold porcelain.

       *snicker* The image this gave me was soap bubbles which attack house intruders.

       I can't beleive that one who uses a moniker of numbers brings up The Prisoner!

       And what exactly is wrong with leaving a toilet seat up?

       I really don't want to get into that debate, Doc. This product is for those who have sleepily entered a dark bathroom or otherwise missed a vital checkpoint and landed on or in the icy cold porcelain.

       dustin gets thirsty when he sees a reservoir of water, that to him looks clean and tasty. Seat down please.

       You mean there are guys out there that still bother to lift the seat before they pee?   

       Why not just get a fast drying seat, and glue it in place...
