In case you have not noticed, we are all about the bathroom tech this month at Unplggd. This month we have taken a look at devices that help us to better clean our bathrooms and high tech saunas, just to name a few, and now we've cast our attention on the humble bathtub.
Where you inspired by our selection of great tech bathrooms from the web? Check out this roundup of teched out tubs and get ready to built your own high tech bathroom suite. While the price points of many of these tubs put them in the aspirational category for many of us, they sure are fun to ogle and imagine in our bathroom!

- Tub-E Electronic Bathtub by Wild Terrain Designs looks kind of like a bucket from the future. Pinhole LED lights are embedded into the outer rim of the Tub-E, shedding light over the bathtub and providing just enough to see clearly up and down the stairs. Other tech features include the auto fill, auto empty and auto clean option. Yes, this tub can clean itself. The Tub-E also has a built-in heater underneath the seat, which allows you to adjust the water temperature.
