    First of all, the sink/urinal combo isn't a new concept. I posted one back in 2010 here, and I'm sure it's existed even before then. The idea is that the combo 1. will save water by using the 'gray' water you just washed your hands with to flush the toilet and 2. encourage du... / Continue →

    The Abisko Washbasin from Eumar isn't even a basin. It's a freaking waterslide. A waterslide sink that drains onto the floor. How hilarious would it be if some bar installed this thing and forgot to put in the drain? Or even better -- you clogged it with a bunch of paper to... / Continue →

    The Gessi ceiling-mounted faucet is mounted to the ceiling because walls are boring. You control the flow with a little joystick (or optional remote) and they probably cost a fortune. Especially if you don't already have water pipes running in your ceiling. Still, I like the... / Continue →

    Clue brand Blood soap has red coloring added so it looks like you're cleaning blood off your hands whenever you go to wash them. It's an awesome idea and my mommy says I should wash my mouth out with rat poison because I use lots of dirty words. I want some, unfortunately I'v... / Continue →

    Mister Miser is a urinal that folds out of the wall to save space. It looks bad. It has a "porcelain-like" finished door, meaning it's a big piece of plastic, and costs $295. It only uses 10 ounces of water per flush, making them a greener alternative than regular toilets. ... / Continue →

    Can't tell what you're looking at? It's a $26,000 bathtub from artist Tetsuya Nakamura. It reminds me of a pipe I used to have. My grandmother found it in my sock drawer and kicked me out of her attic. The bathtub is made out of reinforced plastic though, not glass. But I ... / Continue →
