A new high-tech automated porta-potty being installed in Center City, Philadelphia. The first public toilet in Philly, the toilet will cost 25 cents to use. And after each use, the inside of the bathroom is completely sanitized. The high tech toilets cost $250,000, and ths city of Philadelphia has already ordered a dozen!
Martin McDonough from Wall USA says that "the toilet is servo motor driven, microprocessor controlled. It's got the latest in automated technology. It's self-cleaning within 50 seconds."
This is a good idea and all, but what if you really have to go? Waiting 50 seconds may seem like forever!
