When it comes to inventions that people tend to take for granted, toilet technology must be pretty high up on the list.

To give some appreciation to our royal bathroom thrones, Emergency Plumbers has put together an infographic exploring the past, present and future of the essential household appliance. The infographic shares cool tidbits such as when the first recorded water closet in history was, what building was the first to feature indoor plumbing and who was the first owner of the flushing toilet. Hint, the new toilet technology was owned by British royalty. No surprises there.

But where is the toilet going? I mean that metaphorically, not literally, because I don't want to know the literal answer. The infographic explores the toilet technology of the future as well, and there's some pretty neat possibilities coming down the pipeline.
