Photo of the day: Push to take toilet paper

Push to take toilet paper

I snapped this shot inside the spiffy public restroom at Madison Square Park. The restroom cleans itself after every use, a total water-and-soap spray-down of the entire space. So naturally, the toilet paper can’t be exposed — it would get soaked! Instead, it’s hidden behind a trap door. When you press the button, the metal door opens and a pre-determined amount of toilet paper is released. Thankfully you can press the button several times in a row.

I just love how a bit of paper is sticking to the wet metal. I would have LOVED to see this prototyping process, if there was one.

    What cracks me up is that everyone is commenting on the button placement and not the fact that this bathroom cleans itself!? Have self-cleaning bathrooms become common place and I didn't even know about it.

    I had a clogged toilet the other day and could have used a self cleaning option for that.
