Can American Standard design an uncloggable toilet?

"PISCATAWAY, N.J.--If you think that bathrooms are standardized, low-tech places, walk through American Standard's cavernous 2-year-old design center.

In one room, 12 toilets are flushing as if under ghostly control; an electronic machine is pulling the virtual levers--and manipulating water temperature and pressure as well. In smaller rooms nearby, one man is alternately flushing cylinders of miso paste, wadded-up paper, and as many as 24 golf balls at a time, while another is inspecting different glazes on ceramic tiles."
