Cleaning the toilet is one of those jobs that nobody likes. Wouldn't it be better if toilets could just, you know … clean themselves? Well, the creators of the SpinX are claiming that their device will allow your toilet to do just that.

The SpinX gets hooked up to your household water supply via an included hose, and replaces the existing toilet seat and lid – it comes in two shapes, which between the two of them should reportedly fit almost all residential toilet fixtures in North America.

Here's how it works …

You start by pressing a button on the SpinX. This causes a robotic scrubbing arm to fold down from a compartment on the inside of the lid. That arm will rotate its way around the bowl, above and below the waterline, spinning and scrubbing as it goes. It also dispenses soapy water, the soap coming from a refillable hopper outside the toilet.

Additionally, water jets on the underside of the lid give the seat a good soapy spraying, after which it's dried using forced air.

The whole process takes a claimed 90 seconds, and everything is powered by a removable rechargeable battery pack which should be good for over 30 cleaning cycles per charge. It is possible to replace the brush – the designers recommend doing so once every six months.

If the SpinX sounds like your cup of tea, you might want to check out its Kickstarter campaign. A pledge of US$198 will get you a unit, when and if it reaches production. The planned retail price is $350.

It can be seen doing its thing, in the following video.

Cleaning the toilet is a pain but not difficult. Cleaning that device looks like a lot of work.
As I have learned from backing several crowd funding campaigns, they seldom work as planned, are never on time and most imprtantly will never sell for their planned retail. If you think this is great, wait until they sell them on Amazon or Overstock for $75. Until the crowd funding platforms take more responibility, you will just lose your money. I have a number of times. Oh, and my $5 brush cleans the toilet in about 20 seconds and never needs a charge and has disposable heads...

A toilet is a lot like teeth. The mineral build up is the real problem.
I agree with Steve. I took a gamble on a doohickey a couple years ago and it lasted about 6 uses. I paid over $150. When I tried to get it repaired I discovered the original company had been sold and they didn't backup any of the original devices. Oh, but I love that fake piano music.

Over the top engineering for what a simple toilet brush will do in 20 seconds. The maintenance of the actual mechanism seems worse and more unpleasant than that of the simple toilet brush chore
Definitely a case for faux wood accent instead of white; can you get wraps? Like for cars? Maybe a squatty pottie with massager feet from Inada. Maybe a little tablet holder on a lazy susan around the squatty so you can read Goop...
