Automated Toilets are Too Much

Hello IGWers,

The New York Times posted an interesting article on the automated toilets in Seattle. This truly is an innovation gone wrong. The high tech toilets run over a million dollars apiece. The interesting part of the toilet is that they are completely self-cleaning. The problem with the toilets is that they have become home to drug dealers who can keep the doors closed for up to 20 minutes at a time.

The funniest part of the bathrooms is that these are 12 by 9. 108 square feet is about the size of my room when I was a freshmen in college.

To more toilets gone wrong!
