Why on earth??

I don't know why, but students at Arizona State U's College of Design decided to build a "transgenerational toilet design concept" called Go With The Flow.

"The Flo toilet is an ergonomic, sustainable design concept for baby boomers that functions like a squat toilet. Designers maintain that using the Flo toilet is akin to yoga - by building and strengthening abdominal and back muscles. Only one-half to one gallon of water is used for flushing and The Flo reuses water from hand washing. To flush water from the tanks to the toilet, the Flo employs an electromagnetic ball valve. Go With the Flo also is free of mechanical parts. The toilet is fully self-sustaining and independent of electric power."

OK, so a portion of this design concept makes sense, but does the toilet really need to be transparent? I mean really... You know what this reminds me of? The water tube-slide at Atlantis, Bahamas. Except instead of watching people going through a plastic tunnel, you'd be watching shit.
