Two Japanese parks in Shibuya, a commercial of the Japanese capital have installed transparent toilets for public use.
The glass technology according to the designers is to enable users to check the cleanliness of the faculty and if there’s someone inside before entering.
For those wondering about privacy, the ‘Smart Glass’ used turns opaque when it’s occupied.
Despite this assurances, some users have already admitted some weird feeling as they cannot tell from the inside if they’re on display or not.
Award-winning architect Shigeru Ban was among leading designers in Japan to put together the restrooms which is part of Japan’s Tokyo Toilet Project.
The Project is aimed to change public perceptions on public loos, often tagged as “dirty, smelly, dark, and scary”.
