ⓌⒽⒶⓉ Will ⓉⒽⒺⓎ Think of Ⓝ€✘Ⓣ: The P-Tree and the Toilet Made From Poop!

The P-Tree! 
aka the Piss-Tree by AANDEBOOM

Just when I thought I'v seen it all... 

The P-TREE is a temporary tree-friendly urinal that can be fixed on every tree using straps and lashings. The P-TREE gives a feeling of freedom... (yeah, if you're an exhibitionist).

The P-TREE can be hooked up to a central sewerage system or connected to a tank with a pump. Material: rotation molded recycled plastic, stainless steel and straps and lashings. The P-TREE and Lashings are available in different RAL colors.

The P-TREES were a great success at the Roskilde festival 2011 in Denmark, with more than 100,000 visitors and many of them using the P-TREE more than once.  For the Roskilde festival, AANDEBOOM produced 50 P-TREES in the typical Roskilde Orange color. The P-TREES were placed on 2 different spots near the main stage. By using the P-TREE the festivals problem with public peeing was significantly reduced.

But don't take their word for it.. check out the video below:

Are you grossed out yet?

Well, how about the toilet made from uh... poop!

The Loowatt Toilet

Form follows function to whole new level in Virginia Gardiner’s energy generating toilet – which is literally made from poop!
When you start talking about developing nations, access to clean water and reliable energy are two major problems. The Loowatt takes a crack at both of these problems at once by providing a toilet that converts human waste into natural gas and fertilizer. It doesn’t waste water, it creates fuel, and it takes care of processing human waste – what’s not to love?

Now it’s not clear if every Loowatt is going to look like this but if it does, does it really have to look like a gigantic cylindrical poop? Yuck!

The low-cost mechanical eco commode encourages people to trade in their waste for biofuel, creating an urban infrastructure that encourages proper waste disposal, cuts down on the spread of water-born illnesses, and provides a reliable source of energy (so long as you’re regular). Check out Dwell‘s fantastic video (below) for an interview with designer Virginia Gardiner, and read on for more on the poop toilet!
