BEIJING -- Chinese startup Geometry Healthtech said it has developed a smart toilet that can analyze human excretions, which it hopes to be able to sell by the end of this year.

The company said its smart toilets have built-in sensors that can collect and analyze samples. These results will then be sent to a mobile phone app and users can then be provided with relevant health advice. Not only can smart toilets monitor heart disease but they can also detect symptoms of cancer and diabetes from urine samples.
