New smart urinal cleans manhood hands-free
The rise of technology has paved the way for a lot of ingenious inventions over the years and this high-tech comfort room necessity is no exemption.
The future of men’s bathroom breaks have never looked so bright, as Urinary 2.0, a cutting-edge urinal that takes the hassle out of taking a leak by automating the cleaning process and making it entirely hands-free, is now under development.
The state-of-the-art device, introduced by a Spanish development team led by Eduard Gevorkyan, allows users to not get their hands dirty, while also cutting the chances of dropping valuables in the toilet, since men will be able to hold them with both hands.
Once users finish urinating, the hi-tech urinal will proceed to spray soapy water on their manhood for three seconds and dry it immediately afterwards, an Engadget report said.
Aside from making men’s pissing experience comfier, the toilet accessory also boasts numerous sensors that would adjust the warmth of the water based on the bathroom’s temperature.
The smart urinal will also take into account the user’s height and the size of their appendage, which would adjust accordingly to avoid unwanted spillage.
Gevorkyan, meanwhile, said his team is also working on another version that is specifically tailored to suit women.
As of this writing, Urinary 2.0. is still in its prototype stage, but the company is already negotiating terms to sell the patent to manufacturers. Khristian Ibarrola
