Eco Urinal: Pee and wash in the same stand

The design is cool and I personally like it.

However, not everyone would be comfortable peeing so close to the next guy especially with the mirror angled the way it is. For instance, a tall guy may be able to see 'yours' through the mirror or even through the glass wash basin.

What's cool about this design is that, it saves water. The designer says that when you rinse your hand after the job, the same water can be used to cleanse the urinal basin. It's really handy when space is an issue. But for public toilet, I think the mirror tend to make users stand there longer and the waiting period become longer, too. Not suitable for high traffic toilet.

Hola de enginuer,

Good invention! It's funny when you said "a tall guy may be able to see 'yours' through the mirror or even through the glass wash basin." It's like peeping while peeing...hihihi :p ;))

Have a nice weekend! :)

@Marya Yusof - the urinals are very close together, so people may 'accidently' look at others doing their business.

@gunsirit a.k.a kitou - when urinating "sana utan", make sure you first ask permission.....'nenek,..saya kensing dulu'
nanti dorang marah tu
