I, ROBOT star Will Smith is obsessed with bizarre gadgets, unlike his technophobe character in the sci-fi film.

The 35-year-old hunk admits he spends a staggering amount of money on clever machines and can't help boasting about his latest purchase, a "super toilet".

Smith says, "I'm a techno-junkie. I love technology. Any time I can get something new, I get it, whatever the latest gadget or upgrade or operating system is.

"Me and my wife (Jada Pinkett Smith) are building a new house and we're putting in these super toilets from Japan. They're toilet paper free. You sit on the toilet and it is so deadly accurate.

"Wherever you sit on the toilet, somehow it hits the bull's-eye perfectly. It cleans it and dries it. I was so amazed. And it's so warm and beautiful."
