Heated toilets that spray and dry your ass. Restaurants with buttons on the table to signal your server or touch screen menus to order your food. Vending machines selling hot canned coffee or cold beer. Taxis with automatic passenger doors. One of the largest and most intricate public transit systems in the world. Pristine streets despite a notable lack of garbage cans and […]
