Because this is the sad, sad world we live in, here’s a $ 45 iPad Pedestal Stand from CTA Digital. It combines the ass-wiping practicality of a toilet paper holder with the entertainment-while-you-strain-on-the-john accessibility of an iPad. Now I know 100% of the population uses their phones and tablets on the shitter, but this is like, admitting it. That makes it worse in my mind. Let me be real with you for a minute: I spend more time in the bathroom in a day than four normal people, and that’s just the truth. It’s my Fortress of Solitude. And, despite my 3-4 hour/day habit, there is NO WAY IN HELL I’m buying a $ 45 combo toilet paper/iPad stand. “Only because you don’t have an iPad.” I want one so bad!
Thanks to chichi, who doesn’t even use the bathroom. She just closes the door and splashes some water around in there to pretend she’s like everybody else.

Japanese bathrooms will become a little more interactive, thanks to a brand-new smartphone-controlled toilet referred to as the Satis. Manufactured by Tokyo-based Lixil, this Bluetooth-enabled commode could be controlled with an Android application called “My Satis,” enabling users to flush, raise the commode seat, and trigger a bidet jet stream with the touch of a button. The application additionally lets you stream songs through the commode’s presenters and will immediately keep track of “use history,” providing you a better idea of the amount of electricity and water you’re consuming with each go to.
The application might provide wellness perks, too, as its calendar attribute lets individuals keep a running diary of their day-to-day practices. Maybe most importantly is the reality that the commode …
Inhabitat’s Week in Green: go-kart made of Lego bricks, TOTO toilet bike and the launch of ‘Willow Glass’
As we head towards the house stretch of the 2012 presidential campaign, we’re carefully enjoying both candidates to see exactly what they’re doing for the environment. The Obama administration scored a significant win for fuel-efficient vehicles this week by wrapping up brand-new criteria that will certainly raise the fuel economic climate of vehicles to the equivalent of 54.5 mpg by 2025. But just what about the autos that are currently on the roadway? This week we check drove a 2013 Ford Focus Electric with the streets of San Francisco (we accept, we did get a bit of array anxiousness). And in one of the most interesting automobile stories from the previous week, the world’s very first 3D-printed vehicle– the Areion EV– reached a leading speed of 141 kph.

Inhabitat’s week in green: solar powered toilet, pollution-fighting mural and the world’s largest rooftop wind farm
Hear those school bells in the distance? It’s difficult to believe, but the start of the school year is just a couple of weeks away– and all week we’ve been rounding up a few of our beloved eco-friendly back-to-school essentials. From green school supplies to sustainable knapsacks, we have actually got all your back-to-school needs covered. And to top it off, we’re handing out a laptop-charging Voltaic solar-powered knapsack (worth $ 389) packed with green school supplies for an absolute award bundle well worth over $ 500. If we could return to school and stay in any dormitory, we ‘d most likely choose Copenhagen’s Tietgenkollegiet dorm, a round structure with community kitchens, bistros, new music rooms and a central courtyard. And if we can pick any type of gizmo to take with us, it would need to be the P&P Office Waste Processor, which can change a basket filled with waste paper into fully-formed pencils.

Inhabitat’s Week in Green: energy-harvesting toilet, LED lightbulb overhaul and a floating, solar-powered resort residence
LED innovation shone brighter than the summer sunshine this week as artist Bruce Munro revealed plan of actions for his leading illumination installment ever– a arena of hundreds of LED blossoms that will definitely emerge following year at Australia’s Ayers Rock. Finest of all, the whole installation will be powered by solar energy! We also saw Rice University flip the switch on its brand-new Epiphany Skyspace– a green-roofed pavilion that’s topped with a brilliant blue canopy of light. If you’re still not persuaded that LEDs are the future, we recently created 2 video presentations that make sure to show you the light– look into our interview with five expert lighting designers on today’s state of the art LED bulbs and watch as we give Inhabitots editor Julie Seguss a light bulb overhaul that shaves over $ 400 off her utility costs. And if you’re ready to make the switch, have a look at our guide to 24 stunning green lamps that look great with LED bulbs.
This week saw some amazing brand-new developments in the realm of eco-friendly energy. First, a group of researchers in the UK developed a new energy-harvesting device that attaches to the joint between the thigh and shin. The tool might be made use of to power monitors and mobile devices, to name a few possible applications. Meanwhile, experts from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have actually designed a new commode that turns human waste into electricity while reducing the amount of water needed for flushing by up to 90 percent. That’s just what we call, win-win!

Scientists develop flush-efficient toilet system that can turn waste into energy, sort before it recycles
Analysts from Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University aren’t keen on being wasteful– that’s why they’ve established a commode that makes use of 90 % less water than other commodes and is capable of generating energy. Aptly named the No-Mix Vacuum cleaner Commode, the porcelain pedestal’s pot divides waste between 2 partitions– one side for fluids, the other for solids– and uses vacuum tech reminiscent of airline lavatories. Rinsing fluid and solid wastes with 1 and 0.2 liters of H2O, respectively, the can will have the ability to route refuse to external processing facilities. Fertilizer active ingredients such as nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous would certainly then be collected from liquids. Likewise, methane can be coaxed from solids for conversion to electricity or as a replacement for other natural gasses. Two of the university’s restrooms are slated to have the commodes set up in the near future, and the team expects the thrones to roll out worldwide within three years.

It’s an unsettling thought, having to drink water from that bowl in your bathroom, but if the need ever arose, wouldn’t you be glad to know it was clean and safe? Dr. Sarah Haigh, a researcher into the properties of nanomaterials at Manchester University, is currently pursuing this goal with a $ 100,000 grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. With the help of nanomaterials and bacteria, Haigh believes that hydrogen can be easily extracted from not only the water, but human waste itself, which could then be processed into clean water. Should the system work effectively, Haigh stands to receive an additional $ 1,000,000 grant to further her research and develop inexpensive purification systems for use in nations without modern infrastructure. And you thought nothing worthwhile would come from purchasing Microsoft Office.

Inb4 don’t mind me, just dropping some tweets off at the bird-bath or whatever.
Because this is the world we live in (I want out, STAT), Shitter will print four rolls of TP with the Twitter feed of your choice for $ 35. That’s close to $ 9 a roll. You could almost wipe with dollar bills for cheaper. But boy will your friends get a laugh when the come over to stink up your bathroom! No, no they won’t. They’ll come out after not washing their hands and ask how much you paid for the novelty toilet paper. You’ll tell them $ 35 for 4 rolls and then they’ll call you F***ING DUMB and then go back to pee on the floor beside the toilet like you deserve to have happen. That said, I don’t wipe with Twitter feeds, I wipe with Facebook profiles. In your face, girl that called me four-eyes in middle school! You are looking DUMPY.
Twitter Toilet Paper: Sh*tter Prints Your Twitter Feed On A Roll Of TP [huffingtonpost]
Thanks to Dave and marcus, who wipe the way t-rex’s do. “Rubbing their ass on a tree?” I said t-rex’s, not bears.
Yeaaaaaaaaah, based on the discoloration around the seat hinges and the trashcan overflowing with toilet paper I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say somebody should probably be playing on novice. Amateur! *peeing on own feet*
The Expert Mode You Don’t Want To Mess With [neatorama]
Thanks to Jordan and cory, who can both pee with their eyes closed. Pfft, who can’t? SPOILER: Me — I’m always afraid somebody’s gonna run up and touch it.
eBay seller the_heppcat is selling the six rolls of TP he used to painstakingly hand-typed the entirety of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick. Huh? Yes for real, people are f***ing weird (links to the tampon Mona Lisa to prove my point).
My friend and I once joked that toilet paper should have instructions printed on them for certain people.
One day, the conversation grew from there and turned into a wager that i couldn’t (or wouldn’t) be able to type out a novel on toilet paper.
Yes, we did have some time on our hands but, as you can see from the photos, I won the bet.
I’ve kept this mod oddity in a box in a cool, dry place for the last 10 years
and have only broken it out to prove to doubters that I actually did it.
I’m not sure what’s up with the skinny roll but my guess is somebody edited a few chapters if you know what I mean. No? You don’t know what I mean? Jesus, I’m talking about wiping — you should really try it sometime.
Hit the jump for some closeups and a link to the eBay auction (bidding starts at $ 200 but there’s a reserve).
