Designers (almost) pull their head outta their...

In jest, in jest. Designers are glorious, even more so when their heads are thinking about other peoples' arses.

I'm talking about the PeePoople. Seriously. According to their site, 6.2 billion people don't have access to sanitation, it's a huge issue in developing countries where this gadget is a lifesaver.

So how does it work?

Well you peepoo into a bag, close the bag and bury it. The bag biodegrades and it's contents turn into fertiliser. You can use it chamberpot, or just straight into the bag. It doesn't require water for sanitation - which is all very well and good.

So....Closer to home. I'm thinking this will revolutionise festivals, bush walks, and when you housemate spends too long in the bathroom and you're busting for your morning 'rush'.

The possibilities for the peepoople are as endless as the poo, wee and bottom jokes (that I am desperately trying show restraint with).

So thank you whoever designed this, I can only imagine the product testing and research phases (sorry).

Oh, oh and let's not forget the 'Go-Girl' my first favourite wee invention, for women who "Don't take life sitting down"
