Boeing shows off a self-cleaning airplane bathroom

Boeing is showing off a prototype for a far-ultraviolet sanitizing system that could kill 99.99% of pathogens in an airline lavatory in 3 seconds. They're also adding a UV sanitation system to the water faucet so people can brush their teeth safely. 

On the topic of airline bathrooms, I'm a huge fan of the Toto Washlet (Japanese bidet toilet) but I'm sad that no airlines except JAL and ANA have opted to put it into their planes. When we flew Korean Air's A380 in First Class, the absence of a Washlet was a downer.
