Bathtub bling

Fortunately, the price tag makes it easier to resist. But geez, get a load of this:

[T]he $47,000 Red Diamond bathtub from Water Games Technologies is probably a new low high in powder-room decadence. The screaming-red tub features multicolor lighting, a computer-controlled heating system that maintains your desired water temperature, an automatic disinfection system and built-in massager. Of course, that’s what any peasant’s tub offers — the real action is in the two retractable HDTVs, Swarovski-encrusted champagne holder, and built-in GSM module that lets you call your bathtub and get things ready for some splashy time from afar.

You guys with CDMA phones are just out of luck.

    Charles, you might want to post a GREAT BIG WARNING about that link. It seized 100% of my computer’s CPU and kept it for several minutes. I had to abort the browser via Task Manager to get control back.

    Interesting looking tub, though. I must insure that the C.S.O. never hears about it.

    Had no problem with the link. It might built-in intelligence targeting the right audience: it knows who will NEVER buy this monster.

    Francis, I’m sure C.S.O. will have no problem opening the link.

    1st: it’s screaming-red. Not a flattering color for a feminine skin of any shade (unless she’s uniformly violet-ebony)
    2nd, further: purplish lighting will make you look like a zombi
    3rd. what do you need a HDTV for when you have a woman in your tub? unless you want to quarrel; then have her to watch a chick flick and you – a boxing match
    4rd. no woman will watch tv when she can drink champagne and get a relaxing massage. those just don’t go in together, temperamentally
    5th:
    for this price you should demand a real diamonds, not damn Swarovskis, baby

    Other women opinions welcome, of course

    I’ve pulled up this link on three different machines without difficulty; I can only conclude that at the time FWP was coming through, AOL, which owns Engadget, was trying out some new and presumably heinous advertising technique.

    Do they make a version with a built-in bookstand, for those of us who prefer to read paperback mysteries (over watching…well, I don’t know what a person would watch while in the bath; the thought of that boggles my mind) in the tub?

    I don’t know; I guess I’m kind of a Luddite at heart – the idea of a tub that pimped out disgusts me a little.
