Transparent Public Washroom in Lausanne, Switzerland (UPDATE)

There's a new tourist attraction in Lausanne, Switzerland. The transparent washroom sits on a public sidewalk where passerbys might just catch a free show.

You won't actually have to do your business in public though. The washroom is made of glass with liquid crystals that frost over when the “voir” button is pushed.

Check out the transparent washroom in action in the video above.

Implications - Having a see-through washroom in public definitely hints at a rise in human curiosity and an obsession with "knowing." Due the rise in popularity of reality television shows, people now realize that you don't have to be a celebrity to be interesting. Reality television reaches out to many different groups of people such as coupon clippers and animal hoarders alike. With these shows becoming more and more personal, television continues to push the boundaries into the future.
