Tokyo, Japan – August 19, 2020
Transparent public toilets which light up “like a beautiful lantern” have been installed in Tokyo. Glass technology has been adopted so prospective users can inspect the cleanliness of the facilities – and to see if anyone is inside.
The toilets use coloured “smart glass” which turns opaque when they are occupied. Users have already said how, once inside the toilet, they cannot tell if the glass is opaque or not – giving them the strange feeling they are on display.
