Just when we thought there wasn't a corner of our lives that hi-tech hasn't reached, US startup LUMI created a next-generation toilet brush holder.
LUM uses UV light to kill germs, with an automatic dose every time you put the brush in its base.
The LUMI appears to be a hit with investors, who don't think the idea stinks as the company has already smashed their crowd-funding goal. The goal was set at about R71,500 ($5,000) and was comfortably sitting at a little over R800,000 ($56,131) at the time of writing.
A standard LUMI toilet cleaning brush that comes with a germ killing base will cost about R570 ($40) for the early-bird value kit that also includes an additional LUMI replacement head.
The LUMIs are expected to start shipping from March 2019 with South Africa included on the list of destinations the company plans to deliver to.
