Toilet 2.0 — The New King of Thrones

Illustration for article titled Toilet 2.0 — The New King of Thrones

For as much time as people spend on the toilet, you'd think someone would have rectified the glaring design issues with them by now. What? The Toilet 2.0 by David Hakkens did?

The Toilet 2.0 has been redesigned from the bathroom floor up. It's constructed of Corian, a composite material created by DuPont, that's lighter, thinner, and stronger than traditional porcelain. Eight high-pressure cleaning jets keep the interior of the bowl tidy while a built-in air freshener will allow you to (accurately for once) boast that no, in fact, your shit does not stink.

The master stroke is the design of the bowl itself. The shallow-bottom, wide-body, lipped design not only aids in self-cleaning but it keeps you from experiencing the dreaded "impromptu bidet" action of a seated flush. The system will even reuse grey water from your sinks and dishwasher to flush its lines behind the wall (fresh water is still used to clear the bowl). The Toilet 2.0 is still in the design stages, so you'll have to keep shelling out $6400 for your game-changing cans for now. [David Hakkens]

DISCUSSION

I think the fact that we use precious, scarce and valuable fresh clean water to wash our shit and piss away is lunacy and should be halted as quickly as possible. Additionally, the seated position, while comfortable to 'sit' in is not conducive to bowel evac. Squatting or, at least having you knees higher than your pelvis is much better, easier and healthier.

Lastly, This picture is kind of creepy and I hope they aren't going back to Roman style, where everyone shits together, out in the open. I'm cool with using a public shitter, but I don't want to look someone in the eye while taking a 'load off'.
