23 Creative Porcelain Thrones

These Toilet-Related Innovations Will Make You Pee with Enthusiasm

— July 27, 2011 — Art & Design
Everyone poops -- even the people who find the very word offensive; so what better way to broach the already awkward, uncomfortable topic than by discussing toilet-related innovations meant to make pooping as easy as possible?

Whether you suffer from a lack of fashion, a lack of style or simply suffer from incontinence, these forward-thinking inventions will urge you to reevaluate your bathroom habits for the better. Inventions like the sink-toilet hybrid will have you riding the porcelain pony all night long!

In the world of tomorrow, urinals are no longer gender-exclusive, toilet paper is bright and colorful and people don’t hesitate to poo on-the-go. I, for one, welcome all of these scatological innovations. Take a look for yourself and see what the future holds for your bowels!
