Smart Pipe is not a real product, it’s a comedic design fiction, but it’s actually a great parody of Internet of Things products. Smart Pipe is a wifi-enabled pipe segment that attaches to your existing plumbing infrastructure in order to monitor everything that you flush down the toilet. Anything that it can learn by analyzing your waste can be tracked by corporations,  tweeted to your followers, and other IoT tropes. And you can flush from anywhere!
