Der japanische Toilettenhersteller Toto hat ein Trike gebaut, in das man reinscheißt und das die Exkremente dann in Treibstoff umwandelt. I shit you not!
Toto is Japan's biggest toilet bowl making company. You see the logo everywhere you go--at the airport, in department stores, at people's homes. Now you may also see it on the road--the company just released its first hybrid toilet-motorcycle that runs entirely on poop! As the person drives, he can poop into the bowl, and that poop will be turned into fuel for the car. It's actually part of a campaign that Toto is running in an effort to reduce its CO2 emissions by 50% in the next 6 years. The motorcycle will be making its way from Kyushu to Tokyo over the next month (departing in six days). Very exciting! I'm not sure who's driving but I'm sure that, in addition to having a drivers license, they had to check his stool to make sure its healthy and fuel-worthy.
