Discover some of the most bizarre urinals and toilets around the world that we are sure you would love to have a tinkle in.
Funny and bizarre toilets around the world are constantly being invented and created to make this moment of privacy a little more joyful.
1. The Vertebrae
The Vertebrae is the brainchild of award-winning designer Paul Hernon, of Huddersfield, who created it with small apartments in mind.
This super compact bathroom unit has special features that spin out from the center as you need them.
The Vertebrae includes toilet, sink, shower and storage units, all of which are connected in a central column, hence the name of the invention.
The entire unit occupies an area of less than 1 square meter and it’s the designer’s dream to see his invention installed as apartment toilets around the world.
2. Glass Walled Public Urinals
A “transparent toilet” turned lure in Changsha, in Hunan province, China. This public bathroom with glass walls was built next to Shiyan Lake, in an area with plenty of vegetation.
The glass walls allow anyone to see who is using the toilet.
On the first day, several people went to see the novelty, but they avoided “testing” the urinals.
3. Video Gaming Urinals
British company Captive Media thinks it has developed a product that fills the gap in the market – a urinal mounted, urine-controlled games console for men.
The device sits above a standard urinal bowl where users are presented with three generous targets to aim for as they go.
Symbols in the unit read “Start,” “Left,” and “Right.” and the urinal can detect which one you are peeing at using a special infrared device.
Once players have finished their business, they can post their scores to Twitter and a live leader board. Would you guys just love to use these toilets around the world?
4. The Golden Throne In Hong Kong
This toilet was created and produced by the Hang Fung group of Hong Kong back in 2001 and it is made of 24 carat gold. The seat is also made of solid gold.
To complement this throne fit for a king, the toilet paper is also made with gold.
5. The Doctor Who Loo
A replica of Doctor Who’s time-travelling machine was bought by the owners of Warmley’s Waiting Room Cafe.
They have spent around £1,800 on the Tardis and spent almost as much installing the “Who Loo” in the Cafe.
This Time machine loo is complete with flashing blue light and Tardis sound effects.
6. The Trumpet Toilet
Talk about blowing your own trumpet. The men’s loos in The Bell Inn in Sussex feature trumpets which double as urinals.
7. A Venus Flytrap Urinal
The sculptor and craftsman of this urinal has developed a reputation world wide as one of the world’s most creative manufactures of luxury urinals shaped like flowers and plants.
This Venus Fly Trap urinal comes with a $11,500 price tag and a full set of spikes, but fortunately for its future users, they are made of silicone rubber.
8. P-Tree Urinals
Dutch designer Sam van Veluw discovered an interesting and very creative way to solve a problem of outdoor toilets during events, festivals and concerts.
He suggests tying a simple weeping vessel to the trees and interconnecting them with simple pipes, with quick couplings to the nearest sewer. Simple and effective.
9. A Mirro Loo
This toilet was created in 2003 by the architectural artist Monica Bonvicini in London.
The public loo is covered by special mirrors that reflect the light outside and is transparent to those inside.
10. Bathroom That Appears and Disappears
The city authorities of Victoria, Canada, had an interesting idea: a public toilet that disappears by day, so it wouldn’t disturb the landscape of parks and gardens, and that appears “magically” at night, ready to meet the physiological needs of the public.
