This idea went down the toilet

They’re blue, smelly and are about 4 feet deep by 4 feet wide.  A Porta Potty.  The “other” blue box in American life.  We use them, cause…well you need one.

How do we make these public toilets better?

Maybe make them clear, bigger and glow with cool colors.  ???

In Tokyo they approached the problem differently:  They’re made of smart glass (turns opaque when you lock the door), cleaner, more accessible, have more security and just make the area “pretty”.

Talk about an idea going down the toilet; just like this post! ;0)
…and that turned out to be the right thing.
