High Voltage London Toilet

at 2:08 pm. Filed under What Were They Thinking


There are some crazy washrooms in the UK, they seem to like to automate everything. Is it just me or does that large high voltage symbol on the outside of the washroom make you a bit uneasy to use the facilities? Not sure why we need washroom doors that open and close automatically, but since most washrooms cost money I guess we can see what the money is paying for. This one was down the road from the London Monument.

Not sure if this one has voice capabilities but there was one in Glasgow that had subway like doors which opened and closed automatically. There were electronic buttons for everything, soap, water, hand dryer, toilet paper, call for help. Only thing that was missing was a button to flush the toilet, they apparently flush the toilet and go through a full internal self clean after each use. They have large LED number displays on the wall with a fifteen minute countdown, not sure what happens if the washroom is occupied for longer than 15 minutes, does the user get a free shower and blow dry?
