You know what’s wrong with toilets? The one, absolutely must-have feature that they’re all missing? The ability to keep goal against international footballers. That’s what.
Enter the Super Great Toilet Keeper. The toilet goalkeeper was built as a collaboration between TOTO, a Japanese high-tech toilet manufacturer and toto a sports betting site.
The highly versatile commode is reportedly capable of blocking shots as fast as 160km/h. It does this by making use of two 250 fps cameras mounted either side of the goal to calculate when to pivot and launch a smaller ball at the incoming shot.
The collaboration is part of the two companies’ efforts at green awareness. If you’re wondering why they would build a goalkeeping toilet instead of committing to an actual environmental campaign, the best answer I can offer is: because Japan.
