Japan’s Next-Gen Space Toilet… Your Personal Space Washlet!

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and external engineers are dedicating their time building the next-gen toilet for space exploration. Clean and easy to use, this wearable personal toilet is similar to a diaper and worn at all times.

How does it work? A sensor activated automatic rear mounted suction (pump?!?!?) unit sucks the XXX out of your XXX… Once your business done, an automatic washer and dryer leaves your skin smooth and clean.

    ….of course it would need a power supply that plugs into, hopefully a wall outlet. i can see users suffering in great consternation dueyto having forgot their power supply, and they’d be asking , “hey do you have a 44.68 DC Volt power source ? i forgot my converter and am having an emergent situation”…..”the last time i forgot i used a car battery and it had to many amps and it sucked out 4 ft of my colon and neatly dryed and folded it, I nearly died as it was much later when i discovered this due to I thought i had a very large satisfying movement” lol

    Would like to know if there is a toilet system available for bed ridden patients so that a water nozzle can clean their peri anal region after defecation and a vaccuum cleaner can suck the excreta and dry clean the region.
