The design of this toilet is waterless and very simple to use. As this is funded by a huge company, it undergoes crucial amount of field tests and can very well be termed as 'The Next Big Thing' in the world of sanitation.
The designer of this toilet, Alison Parker said, "It will be very hard to carry out the scheduled maintenance in remote areas, mostly because the toilet needs maintenance every six months at a minimum to replace certain parts. Instead, the toilet will be used in dense urban areas where a number of factors make providing good sanitation very challenging, but where it would be possible to facilitate visits from a maintenance technician."

The Complicated Mechanism
The Real technical design of this toilet is very complex. After a person is done using it, the rotating toilet bowl turns 270 degrees to deposit the waste in a vat underneath. A scraper tool then wipes off any residual waste from the bowl. There's some more to this.
The waste that is solid in nature stays at the bottom and the liquid waste comes on the top. Very thin fibres, known as nano fibres, are arranged in bundles inside the chamber. They help move the water vapour that exists as part of the liquid waste into a vertical tube in the rear of the toilet.

Field testing of this toilet will start later this year. It is expected that this toilet will improve the personal health of millions of people out there.
