A folding toilet?

A folding toilet?

Folding and toilet aren’t two words you would usually put together. Two Huddersfield University students have done the unthinkable and created a toilet that folds up when not in use.

Gareth Humphreys and Elliott Whiteley have submitted their “iota” design to The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) Student Design Awards - Re-Invent the Toilet competition.

The space saving idea curls up like a “cute snail” after it’s been used, making it a must have for any compact bathroom.

As well as saving space, this clever toilet also saves water – a flush using just 2.5 litres of water compared to the 6 of a full sized one. They claim that it could save around 10,000 litres per person, per year.
