In an adapted version of the Japanese “High Tech” toilet, three Starr’s Mill students have envisioned a toilet that will analyze a person’s urine, blood pressure, temperature and weight while sending the data directly to a physician who can authorize an immediate in-home treatment to cure illness.
Students Kevin Thomas, Carol Thomas and Casey Slaggert are the three inventors of “Dr. John” and the winners of the Future Fayette 2030 Contest sponsored by the Rotary Club of Peachtree City, in conjunction with the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.
The winning team was announced at the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce Community Expo held at New Hope Baptist Church on September 14. Each team members received a netbook and Starr’s Mill was awarded $500.
The goal of the competition was to get high school students thinking about products and services that would be included in “smart communities”, or communities of the future.
