Designed to decrease bathroom wait times in public areas, Tooshlights will make using restrooms a more efficient and less awkward experience.

Tooshlights uses a two colored LED lighting system to immediately inform people which toilet stalls are occupied (red), and which ones are empty (green). The design makes it so you no longer have to awkwardly glance under the bathroom stall door to check for feet. There are even plans to integrate Tooshlights data with any venues mobile app so patrons can easily find the closest unoccupied bathroom, an important tool to have at a crowded sports arena.

Tooshlights has so far been installed in the Hollywood Bowl, where a decrease in bathroom wait times has already been noticed.
