Japanese Toilet Bike Runs On Human Waste
Oh Japan. You will never cease to amaze me.
Ladies and Gentleman I would like to introduce to you the Toilet Bike Neo. It's a combination of toilet and motorized tricycle that runs off of biogas derived from human waste. The tricycle is a publicity stunt by TOTO, a Japanese manufacturer of bathroom fixtures, to raise awareness for the TOTO Green Challenge, an effort by the company to cut their carbon emissions in half by 2017. Toilet Bike Neo just started a 600 mile publicity tour from Kyushu to Tokyo.
For those who visit the company's website, you can view an illustrated story about a young man, an older evil looking man, and a scientist. I can't read Japanese but I assume that the story has something to do with the company's efforts to reduce green house gas emissions.
Check out the not so straightforward commercial for the Toilet Bike Neo.
