Totorobo reminds us to flush green

Japanese toilet maker has come up with a little robot mascot on a mobile strap to promote the company's eco-friendly Greenmax 4.8 toilets.


The idea of having one's toilet bowl suddenly grow legs and walk off because you've used up your ration of loo water is, to say the least, disturbing and awkward. But Japanese toilet maker Toto, which manufactures those amazingly high-performance commodes that can do everything but make you coffee, has just unveiled its latest outing, the Totorobo.

Fortunately, the Transformer bowl is really a robot mascot on a mobile strap meant to promote the company's eco-friendly Greenmax 4.8 toilets. As part of its water-saving feature, only 4.8 liters are used in a flush, compared with the usual 13 liters--though whether this cutdown means you now have to choose between flushing the bowl and washing yourself with the bidet feature remains to be seen.
