The General Practitioner Toilet Gives a Check Up from Home

Forget going to your family doctor to find out what ails you, because the General Practitioner Toilet can give you a full-body checkup based on the urine that you would normally flush away without a thought.

The awkward experience of peeing in a cup in a cold and crowded office while the nurse waits on your results could be a thing of the past if these MD-esque waste basins hit the mainstream. Designed by Lucy Jung, the toilet has an internal nozzle which takes a small sampling of your business and does a few routine tests on it.

Once the machine does a once-over of the sample, the results appear on a screen that rests behind the seat to let the Tinkle King or Queen know how healthy they are in the comfort of their own home.
