Panasonic Crapper Stabilization for new toilets

The rumor here in Japan is that the synergy is getting into high gear now. The toilet division took the GX7 image stabilization and improved it for use in toilets! Here in Japan where earthquakes are common having unstabilized toilets is a big problem. Panasonic is about to upturn the whole toilet market with their new toilet with Crapper Stabilization (registered trademark). The crapper sits down and the earth movement sensors in the toilet will stabilize the crapper in case of earth movement! The great thing about this for photographers is that the new stabilization tech from the toilet division then got back to the camera division where some of it made its way into the GX8. Long live synergy!

The whole Pacific Rim (aka Ring of Fire) is prone to earthquakes so Panasonic expects to sell a sh!t load of toilets with Crapper Stabilization.
