There’s a big festival going on in Austin, Texas, called SXSW. One of the not-so-cool things on display there was a high-techporta-potty. As Katie Fehrenbacher describes it:
After you enter the porta potty, a video display is projected onto the door and it can show whether you’re standing or sitting and how long you’ve been in the biffy. While the installation wasn’t working for part of the party, this is the one that I thought would make party-goers the most uncomfortable. No one wants to come out of a porta potty that’s displaying how you’ve been sitting on the toilet for 10 minutes.
