Humans are pretty freedom-driven by nature. No matter what, we want to have the freedom to do what we want to do. However, no matter what type of background we’re from, we’re going to have to do three big things: eat, drink, and use the bathroom.
It’s that third requirement of life that we wanted to cover. Not the actual act of using the bathroom, mind you — that’s for those “gross out” type of sites and all…but we had to look for wacky toilets. We knew there had to be something downright crazy about the types of toilets people will come up, so we had to cover it here.
1. MP3 Toilet
Who doesn’t want to make sure that they have something to do when they’re on the toilet? After all, if you know that you’re going to be in there for a while, you might as well try to make it a pleasant experience, right?
This brings us to our dear friend, the MP3 Toilet — also called the N5A. It costs $1750, which naturally leads you to wonder just what you get for dropping nearly two grand on your toilet needs. Well, in a nutshell, you get a full out MP3 player. It even has an SD card slot, which means that you can carry a lot of music in with you to the bathroom.
The MP3 side has all of the features that you think would come with it, like random playback and repeat. However, the toilet also comes with a seat heater and an automatic washer.
We can definitely see how this toilet would be appealing to some people, if they have the money for it.
2. Happy Fish?
So we heard you like fish… okay, we can’t even finish that one, but if you know your meme, you know what we were going to say.
All memes aside, this is a really wacky toilet. It’s truly a real aquarium on the back of your toilet, which means that you aren’t going to have to do much to surprise guests when they walk into your bathroom. It looks like it’s even childproof, which means that you aren’t going to have to worry about the kids and the fish meeting in strange ways.
3. Would You Use This Toilet?
You know, most of you reading this list probably live in a society where going to the toilet means going to a very nice and clean toilet. However, for millions of people around the world, going to the bathroom is actually a pretty dangerous affair. Aside from civil unrest, there are germs around the bathroom that can really threaten your life. Of course, if you live in a developed society, that’s not something that you have to worry about. But if you’re someone that lives out in the most remote areas of the world, safe toilets aren’t a guarantee.
That’s where this UFO-looking toilet comes in. It’s a toilet designed from the ground up to be able to provide a sanitary place for people to carry out their business. Now, you’re not going to be able to sit on this thing and read the New York Times, but that’s not what it’s meant for anyway.
4. Do You Dare to Use This Toilet?
Are you feeling bold and brassy? If you are, then it’s definitely time to check out this really neat toilet — it’s a bit of a mind game, really. You see, you might think that people can see inside while you’re using the toilet, but that’s not the case. The glass only works one way, which means that even though you know on a logical level that no one can see you, you might still feel like everyone is watching you.
It’s actually a toilet designed by an artist and placed into the area close to the Tate Britain gallery.
5. A Toilet Everywhere You Go?
Thinking about hiking anytime soon? Then you definitely need a private toilet that you can carry around with you wherever you go. Meet the Insipod, a toilet that really operates like a tent. You deploy the tent-like structure, go in and take care of nature’s call. It’s pretty straightforward, so we’ll uh…leave it at that.
Now, would we carry this thing around with us? No — if you’re already out in the middle of nowhere, you might as well just squat and handle business. It’s all biodegradable anyway, right?
This list is probably one of our weirdest, but that’s what makes it funny. Who knew that something so basic as going to the bathroom could morph into a strange list of wacky toilets? However, we assert that some of these toilets actually have a neat purpose, and we wouldn’t mind having one of them in our own home.
So, what do you think? Do you have a solid favorite? Don’t forget to sound off in the comments and let us know!
