The new ActiClean system is the toilet that cleans itself. All it takes is one simple press of a button for the bowl to be sparkling clean.  It’s that easy. 
ActiClean combines the award-winning, brand-exclusive VorMax flushing technology — which delivers the cleanest flush ever engineered — with a fully integrated self-cleaning systemIt features the innovative CleanCurve Rim that omits the rim cavity and holes inside the bowl where dirt and buildup can get trapped, and the EverClean antimicrobial surface that inhibits the growth of stain, bacteria, mold, and mildew, helping it stay cleaner, longer. 

All cleaning components are discreetly hidden from view, yet easy and intuitive to access when the user needs to change batteries or the cleaning cartridge.

GROHE provides pure water enjoyment through innovative water products that delight customers and exceed their expectations, with faucet solutions for every aspect of the kitchen and bath.

The Grohe product that caught my attention during KBIS was their SmartControl shower system... 

The SmartControl System features a push-and-turn button design to control and set all desired shower settings, including water flow, volume and temperature.
