The Fully Automated Bathroom
I recently experienced the newly remodeled Fully Automated Bathroom in the Wilkinson Center. Here is how it goes. Sit on toilet and place hand under the toilet paper dispenser and voila! it dispenses itself into your hand. Then stand up and the toilet flushes itself. Exit stall and place hands under faucet and water turns itself on; place hands under soap dispenser and it dispenses itself. Rinse under self-running water. Here is the best part-approach new Airblade hand dryer (seen left). Insert hands into hollowed out area and slowly pull out (the air turns on when you stick your hands in). Unfortunately, it doesn't really work very well, but it sure looks cool! Now all we need is the automatic sanitary toilet seat cover and self warming toilet seats and we'll be set.
PS Ben recently informed me that they replaced the urinals in the mens bathroom in the WILK, and they are "water-free." That's right, they don't use water, it just all goes straight down the drain. I hope someone is cleaning them regularly.
