Social media reacts to singer Drake's automated toilet

Meanwhile, previously reported that hilarious reactions had trailed the automated toilet of singer Drake that uses button to flush.

In the video, the camera panned towards a black-coloured water closet and it revealed that it is different from the regular ones commonly seen around.

The water closet is technologically built as it comes with a computerised dashboard and buttons that control it.

A press on any of the keys can either open or close the closet. Another key could also bring out water to flush waste products. A white hand was spotted pressing keys as if to show how the water closet works.
