The thermochromic urinal is making quite a stir in the web news world. No one really knows who created and designed this innovative and bizarre waste disposal system.
The wall in the picture clearly demonstrates how this unusual system works. The wall is heat sensitive i.e. it is built of materials that when peed on change color and allow the person to etch patterns. The wall, it seems utilizes the heat of the spray to change color, in this case the blue wall turns orange!
One is not sure whether the thermochromic urinal actually exists or is just a design concept. If at all it does exist, it definitely will give the process of human body waste disposal system a completely new and of course colorful aspect.
Opened in 2005 in New Zealand, this Sofitel Urinal has been designed to have a funnel like design with background carrying images of women sneaking in to catch a view of you. ‘Oolala’ is what they would utter if they see you peeing! So when you need to pee, just don’t feel shy but enjoy the beauties gazing at you!
This toilet should be for +18 only.
Holly Mary Urinal… seriously, how could you pee in front of her?
If you thought peeing at the Sofitel Queenstown was weird… this is going to blow your mind. The Sao Joao da Madeira shopping center in the Northern part of Portugal has a bathroom decorated with female mannequins who lurk eerily behind the urinals. No word on if there’s better privacy from the mannequins in the stalls, but at least they have urinal partition.
6Commerzbank Headquarters Urinal
Commerzbank is a German retail banking company. Their headquarters are located in Frankfurt, Germany. The view from this urinal station is surpassed by few others in the world.
I’m a big fan of being direct, of getting right to the point, of not beating around the bush, etc. But this public urinal certainly took things a little too far.
8George Bush Urinal
While there is tons of anti-Bush paraphernalia out there, few things capture our disdain as well as “George W. Flush”—a design by famed urinal sculptor Clark Sorensen. Unfortunately, this urinal is one of a kind, and was on display at his one-man show entitled “Down The Drain – The Legacy of George W. Bush.” We don’t know if visitors were allowed to relieve themselves in it. Let’s be honest—it would be satisfying on multiple levels.
If the public urinal fails in privacy, this urinal definitely gets a prize for awkward closeness. One little spill could create a huge fight.
Clark Sorensen has created some of the most amazing and beautiful urinals you may ever see (such as the Bush one seen above). These large-scale flowers and shells, deftly crafted of high fire porcelain, are arrestingly beautiful and create a whimsical marriage between beauty and functionality. The strange blend of lyric form and unmentionable men’s bathroom fixture has been described as unsettling, humorous and inspired. Each sculpture is meticulously hand built and one-of-a-kind. And while these pieces are primarily intended as works of art, they are also fully functioning vitreous porcelain fixtures that can be plumbed and used, in fact, the artist encourages it!
The above picture showing a female urinal is currently doing the rounds with a note that it’s a major breakthrough in female toilet technology. The photo looks real enough, although when I showed it to several women they all said they’d never use it, which suggests it was either designed by a man, or is simply a fake. What we do know though is that it’s different.
The Madonna Inn is a kitchy motel located in the town of San Luis Obispo, CA. It is famous not only for its themed rooms and over-the-top decor but also for its elaborate urinals. This is the front view of this world-famous urinal, as photographed by Urinal Dot Net staff in 2000. The black square on the left side wall is a light sensor that activates a waterfall that pours down the rear of the urinal structure when a person stands at the urinal. Weirder fact: This urinal can accommodate two people.
