Like other things, the world of toilets is changing rapidly. While many homes still feature standard toilets that simply hold water and flush human waste down the pipes, toilets of the future are currently being developed. Some newly invented toilets feature mind-blowing innovations that could transform the world of bathrooms forever.
Climate change is a common concern among people in modern society, and as a result, sustainability is an important feature of many modern appliances and plumbing fixtures. Toilets are no exception. While many modern homes feature low-flow toilets that use less water to flush away human waste, the latest plumbing inventions feature toilets that can do a lot more than save water. Toilets that generate power are the wave of the future.
For example, researchers at Caltech recently developed a solar powered waste-treatment and processing system that can turn human waste into hydrogen, water and electricity. This uber-efficient toilet and waste processing system can solve major health problems in developing countries. Also, just think of what you could do with a toilet like this in your own home! With the ability to make water and electricity with your toilet, you could turn going to the bathroom into a green activity that could reduce your home’s carbon footprint and make your home more sustainable.
Standard toilets are utilitarian in nature, but luxury toilets are fun to use. Some of our favorite luxury toilet features include:
