The yoga-inspired toilet for baby boomers

Students at Arizona State University's College of Design have created an unusual-looking concept toilet, called "Go With The Flo", which has just won the Breaking the Rules Silver Award at the Northwest Design Invitational.

Go With The Flo features an ergonomic, sustainable design concept for baby boomers that functions like a squat toilet that you actually sit on.

The designers claim that using this toilet is similar to doing yoga, helping you build and strengthen your abdominal and back muscles.

The toilet is somewhat eco-friendly too as it reuses water that you used to wash your hands at the sink to flush itself by means of an electromagnetic ball valve.
