This is a conceptual 'Eco Urinal' designed by Yeongwoo Kim. It's a urinal that, after you finish relieving yourself in, you wash your hands above, effectively flushing your liquid gold down the drain. Now I know what you're thinking, and no: IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE SHAT IN.
The dirty sink water is used to flush the urinal, so the treehuggers will like the way it saves water. It also takes up a lot less room than a separate sink and urinal, so they can fit more into a small bathroom reducing the waiting times.
Because the sink is right there, it might also encourage the less hygienically inclined to wash up.
Interesting concept, Yeongwoo, except for one small detail: every sink is already a urinal. Back me up, men! Okay I just only kidding you dirty sink-pissers. What in the....no. No! Nooooooooo! HOW YOU GONNA PISS IN THE SINK AND STILL NOT WASH YOUR HANDS?!
Hit the jump for several more shots of going green (or yellow I guess).

Perfect for power cuts, this gro... / Continue →
