Insures that anything left over after a flush, is flushed again
  [vote for,

One unfortunate reality of many people using one bathroom at home is the possibility that someone may flush the toilet, but may not check to see that everything has been flushed away, leaving a rather unpleasant surprise for the next person who comes to use it.

This could easily be avoided by installing a device in a toilet which scans the water a few minutes after the toilet has been flushed, and if it sees anything that's not supposed to be there, it will flush the toilet again. If after a few flushes this does not solve the problem, it can signal (either aurally or visually) the home's occupants to come and fix the matter.

       Its just excrement. Why waste the water?

       What's wrong with personally checking the toilet bowl after you flush?

       This seems silly in a home, yet this could be useful in public toilets.

       This may sell to people who want to keep their dogs from drinking out of the toilet when someone accidentally leaves the seat up.   

       Just add an opaque dye to the water. "What you can't see can't hurt you." (Except for carbon monoxide).
