While many people choose to install a more efficient toilet in their home to help save water and money, Japanese toilet manufacturer Toto has unveiled an ultra-efficient toilet that's built onto a motorcycle.
It's called the Toilet Bike Neo and it apparently serves a purpose. Waste collected in the toilet helps to fuel the three-wheeled motorcycle. The vehicle also has some high-tech extras, according to CNET.com.
"The rolling toilet can play music, write messages in the air using residual light imagery and talk," according to the news source.
According to Gizmag.com, the motorcycle is only a prototype that is meant to raise awareness about water conservation. It will take to the streets of Japan over the next few weeks to help achieve this purpose.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, toilets are by far the main source of water use in the home, accounting for nearly 30 percent of residential indoor water consumption. Experts say individuals who are renovating a bathroom or those who just want to save money by improving their water-efficiency should consider installing a new toilet, as replacing older models with a WaterSense-certified toilet can save as much as 4,000 gallons of water each year.
