Almost Genius: A Thing That’s Two Things

If there’s one thing I love, it’s multitasking.  And if there’s one thing I hate, it’s flushing stuff.  This Eco-Urinal concept is designed to appeal to both of those sensibilities.

To save water, Eco Urinal is designed to use the water that was used for washing hands to flush the urine. By this process, we don’t have to use water twice after using the urinal.
Moreover, it reduces the establishment expenses by optimizing the materials. Upper space of this urinal is made with glass, and it helps to secure a clear view for users. It also promotes people to keep their sanitation because people need to wash their hands to flush the urine after use.

Well he’s no Billy Mays, but Engrish aside, it’s nice idea.  Problem is I just don’t care all that much about washing my hands after using a urinal.  I mean maybe I’ll be more inclined to do it since it’s right there but if you really want to give it a double-use how about slapping a beer tap on there? As far as dual-purpose furniture it’s just  not nearly as useful as, say, a coffee table/foot rest or a toaster/mousetrap.  Show me what you can do in the desk chair/toilet/bidet department and maybe we’ll talk.

Speaking of bidets, is that the best we’re doing?  Maybe Kim can take a crack at a cure for the common wipe.  I expect a prototype by 2032 at the latest.
