It seems we have a bit of a thing for toilets here. Self cleaning ones, add on bidets and for the burrito and chili lovers out there, deodorizing toilet seats. The thing with all of these toilets seats though is that they need a power source, something that doesn't tend to be easily accessible by the toilet. But while they can clean themselves, clean you and keep you warm, they don't address the age old couples conundrum....keeping the toilet seat down.
So it is with great interest that we came across this student project out of Denmark. These four guys designed a toilet that puts the seat down automatically after it is flushed. No extra electricity required. Unfortunately there are no details on how this technically works. A mini hydraulic system from the flushing water perhaps? Sign me up.
