    Part of me suspects this must be a joke, but another part suspects it's deadly serious.

    Thoughts?

    Maybe for when bill gates visit a construction site, lol. Otherwise what contractor would pay for this? So his greasy construction workers can have a high tech potty? This must be a fake.

    There was an article in the daily mail about it today. There going to have them at big musics festivals like Glastonbury but I don't know why someone would wan't to sit on a public toilet at glastonbury and surf the web. Also it's bound to get vandalised within a couple of minutes.

    I read about it on yahoo news I believe.

    What an idea. A hitech outhouse. What will they think of next?

    I'm with you Greg, being a former construction worker. For one, unless they have done something to suppress the stinch that get worse as the day gets hotter, then I don't think anyone will be using it for any lenght of time.

    I wonder if it's wifi ready. I wouldn't mind having one for personal use. Hehe

    Alas, many creditable sources have verified that the iLoo was a joke created by the Microsoft branch in the UK. Those hooligans!!

    Press releases are like underwear. The primary purpose is to cover your ass (unless you are female :wink: ). So its tough to know exactly what happened there.
