TOTO launches motorcycle that runs on human crap

Toto Motorcycle

In an era where energy conservation is a global priority, some people have developed new (and sometimes bizarre) ways to power vehicles. For example, TOTO, Japan’s biggest toilet manufacturer, has managed to build a motorized tricycle that runs entirely on human stool. Yes, crap, sh*t, poop! And as long as the driver continues to eat, the trike could run forever.

From TokyoMango:

”As the person drives, he can poop into the bowl, and that poop will be turned into fuel for the car. It’s actually part of a campaign that Toto is running in an effort to reduce its CO2 emissions by 50% in the next 6 years. The motorcycle will be making its way from Kyushu to Tokyo over the next month (departing in six days).”
