A shower toilet
In Japan, toilets that offer showers are commonly called washlets, and include many advanced features rarely seen outside of Asia. The features commonly found on washlets include bidet washing, seat warming, and deodorization. The washlet isn't cheap yet, in Japan, they are everywhere. In fact, compared to plain, old, featureless toilets, washlets are in the majority of restrooms. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.engadget.com/amp/2014/05/09/westerners-guide-to-japanese-toilets/

An army of robots to sort parcels
Chinese delivery firm Shentong is leading in automation. Orange robots at the company's sorting stations are able to identify the destination of a package through a code-scan, virtually eliminating sorting mistakes. They can sort up to 200,000 packages a day, and are self-charging, meaning they are operational 24/7. Shentong estimates its robotic sorting system is saving around 70-percent of the costs of a human-based sorting line. http://m.huffingtonpost.ca/2017/04/18/shentong-express_n_16087678.html
