Only in Japan…the Happiness Counter was developed at the University of Tokyo after it was shown that smiling contributes to mental well-being. The Happiness Counter uses AI-based facial recognition to make smiling a part of daily life…by requiring you to smile to get access to your refrigerator!

Wow! What a way to make people happier!  I think that doing the same with the toilet could be even more effective.
