The Head

Automated Reminder Head for Children's Bathrooms.

Input: that water pouring sound into the toilet bowl. Sound stops. Expected next input not received (flush)
Delayed Response: "My little friend, did we remember to flush?"
(If the flushing sound prevents the delayed response, the Head will smile & offer random congrats.)
Expected next input: running water at the faucet. (Not received: "AAAAHHHHhhhh! your hands! Your hands! Wash them please!")
amoung other expected steps would be: Drying hands, turning off the light, and closing the bathroom door.
If only I had a complimentary robotic head that did this for me. I think my kids would like it better also. I might as well be the robotic head in the bathroom as many times as we've reviewed the same procedure.
Maybe even the Head could in moments of prolonged occupancy say "I've just been hanging around here all day, How was your day?"

       I think my nephew would skip a step just to get it to react.   

       What would it do if *you* forget any of the above?

       Smart Potty.+ I can go out to play now.

       I like this idea. You get a bun. I'd like things like this all around my house, because I'm rather forgetful that way.

       I'm thinking Zaphod Beeblebrox here. Anyone else?

       Great idea. Everyone can use reminders. It would also be a fun way to freak out your guests. +
