Poop powered motorcycle

Hey guys see this!

A poop powered motorcycle, able to run indefinitely as long as the driver gets enough food ;-)

So why are our homes not powered by our toilets ??????

This Poop-Powered Toiletcycle Is Touring Japan

This Poop-Powered Toiletcycle Is Touring JapanYou're looking at the Toilet Bike Neo. It's the creation of Japan's commode-king TOTO and is just what it looks like—a toilet-motorcycle hybrid. That runs on human excrement. Wait, wha?

The Toilet Bike Neo will be conducting its roughly 500 mile trip from Kyushu to Tokyo powered entirely by the on-board biogas digester. Biogas systems use an anaerobic bacteria system to convert dead organic matter into a usable fuel primarily made of methane. This system obtains its fuel from the rider—directly from the rider, if you get what I mean. It runs on the rider's poop—he just sits there, unloads, and rides off (hopefully with a step involving pants at some point as well). The system is reportedly efficient enough that it could run indefinitely were the rider sufficiently well fed.

TOTO, the top commode manufacturer in Japan, just unveiled an insane poop-powered motorcycle topped with a toilet that will travel across the island nation to promote company's "Green Challenge" of reducing emissions 50% over the next five years. Dubbed the Toilet Bike Neo, the vehicle runs on biogas that is produced by an on-bike toilet, communicates in Japanese using LED lights, plays music, and TALKS. That’s right folks, poop and ride.

As bloggers and humor writers, we like to joke around a lot about the differences between American pop culture and the styles and fads of our friends in Japan. A few tentacle and panty jokes later, we’re all having a good laugh and we can go back to making fun of Germany’s love for David Hasselhoff. But today I am honestly jealous and in awe of Japan’s most significant and glorious contribution to society to date: Japan made a motorcycle that runs on poop.

Yesterday, in the city of Kitakyushu, the company TOTO – not to be confused with Cajun Boy’s favorite band – unveiled the Toilet Bike Neo, a motorcycle that has a toilet for an engine. And to prove that this was actually part of an incredible green initiative and not some sick joke, TOTO is sending a driver from Kyushu to Tokyo (over 600 miles) to spread green awareness throughout the country. This ride is a part of TOTO’s Toilet Bike Neo Project, which was created to reduce CO2 emissions in Japanese bathrooms by 50% over the next 5 years.

You can follow the voyage of the Toilet Bike Neo on TOTO’s blog (warning: totally in Japanese), and after the jump I have the inception and creation of this amazing leisure vehicle in pictures. All hail the poopcycle!
