The TOTO toilet bike runs on poo

THE dream is now a reality. No longer will you need to speed on the hard shoulder of the motorway? Wave goodbye to asking for the toilet key at service stations. Japanese toilet maker TOTO present the Toilet Bike Neo, as seen on display in its Fujisawa showroom. TOTO rolled out the eco-friendly three-wheel 250cc motorcycle with a specially customized toilet-shaped seat that runs on bio-fuel from the discharge of livestock or waste water. TOTO employee Akiko Matsuyama wears the look of a woman who has used her last TenaLady. Freedom is ours! Have incontinence will travel.

Update: TOTO says the bike does not run on human poo and wee. Not even on human gas. Still, it does run on modified livestock waste, the four-star, leaded cow sort. Yours might be more 2star, unless you’re a vegan, in which case it’s more of drip feed system akin to that zippy waste water.
