'Go with the Flo' Yoga Toilet Flushes With Used Sink Water

If you're looking for a state-of-the-art commode it would be hard to top the Quattro, St. Thomas Creations' super toilet that can flush anything. Some creative students at Arizona State University, though, have designed a new model that will aesthetically, if not functionally, challenge the mega-flushing Quattro.

The 'Go with the Flo,' which won an award at the Northwest Design Invitational, requires no mechanical components, reuses stored sink water to flush, and features a yoga-inspired seat intended to strengthen back and abdominal muscles. If you've ever walked out of a stall feeling like you just experienced a hard-core workout, well, now you really can work it out while doing your business.

According to DVICE, "an electromagnetic ball valve sluices just one-and-a-half gallons of water from the tanks to the bowl," but be sure to install it correctly so you don't reverse the flow and wash your hands with poo-water. Just kidding. That probably won't happen. At least, we really, really hope it won't.

The seat does look somewhat awkward, so we're not sure what yoga pose is necessary to properly sit. But, we'll go out on a limb and take a couple of guesses. If it's not the 'Seated Wide Legged Straddle,' it has to be either the 'Half Moon,' or the 'Legs Up the Wall.' [From: DVICE]
