Josh Coon, the Thomas & Margaret Pyle Chair at the Morgridge Institute and a UW-Madison professor, said his team became interested in the toilet as a way to collect health samples.
The toilet would pump out a urine sample away for analysis, and the scientists are calling the concept a toilet revolution.
Some of the available information is alcohol consumption, caloric intake, and how quickly a person metabolizes certain medicine.
