Japan, where weird thing are created. Apparently, the Japanese toilet company Toto has designed a tricycle that actually runs on human poop. This might be the single greatest invention of the century, but where do you keep the toilet paper?
Toto is Japan's biggest toilet bowl manufacturer, at least in Japan. You can see their logo everywhere you go, at the airport, in department stores, at people's homes. Now you may also see it on the road as the company just released its first hybrid toilet-motorcycle that runs entirely on poop.
As the person drives, he can poop into the bowl, and that poop will be turned into fuel for the car. It's actually part of a campaign that Toto is running in an effort to reduce its CO2 emissions by 50% in the next 6 years. The motorcycle will be making its way from Kyushu to Tokyo over the next month.
I'm not sure who's driving but I'm sure that, in addition to having a drivers license, they had to check his stool to make sure its healthy and fuel-worthy.
