‘The Daily Poo!’ Toilet Tech plus the latest news & views in the poop loop.

There’s a fundamental difference about the way people go to the loo, primarily (as a generalisation) in the west we sit, and in the east they squat.

In itself the correct posture is quite a matter for debate, after all humanity was designed to squat. Then way back in the days of the Sumerians, sitting suddenly became a new option, adopted by the Romans and carried through to the present day. But, where was the research and science to back up the supposition that sitting was a good option, when squatting had always been the natural position by design. Today, a vast amount of the population (who are fortunate, or not, to have such facilities) are still squatting. Meanwhile sitting continues to be adopted farther afield, and toilet manufacturers keep inventing more devices to enhance the experience. That’s what we’re highlighting in ‘The Daily Poo!’ today… Toilet tech and a few other articles on what’s happening behind those closed doors.

  1. This time last year The Bill Gates Foundation showcased products aimed to revolutionise sanitation technology… Bill Gates brandishes poo to showcase reinvented toilet tech!
  2. 16 weird things [and amazing inventions] that shock foreigners about Japanese bathrooms. We ought to be adopting a few of these technologies & ideas here!!
  3. Toilets around the World: Designs in various countries…
  4. Shower, toilet and paper: Why the rest of the world considers toilet habits of the West strange.
  5. Inspiring Design Ideas for Dezeen Day: Sewage as a post-plastic alternative…
  6. Here’s what bathrooms look like all around the world [Insider]:
  7. Toilets get a high-tech makeover… Manufacturers of the toilet are going high-tech.
  8. Top 10 bathroom innovations of the future… from voice recognition to hovering mirrors that may soon be reality.
  9. Travel Tips and ‘when a squat’s the only option…’
  10. In case you missed it, ‘How dog poop illuminated a street lamp!’
  11. The Poop powered Pub.

Next week we’ll look at charities and organisations that aim to aid poorer countries as the World Health Organisation reports, 74% of the world’s population (5.5 billion people) used at least a basic sanitation service. 2.0 billion people still do not have basic sanitation facilities such as toilets or latrines. So heading back to our first article that’s what Bill Gates and others are on a mission to change. Another amazing man is also on the same mission, Jack Sim aka Mr. Toilet who founded World Toilet Day which takes place on November 19th this year. He’s also just released his first movie documentary, which we hope will be shown in the UK anytime soon…. Mr Toilet: The World’s #2 Man
