This may be kind of a weird thing to be thinking about, but hey, I was in a public restroom today and I had Tomorrowland on my mind.
Wouldn't it be cool if they put in an all-automated restroom in Tomorrowland? Like, automatic flush, automatic sinks, automatic towel/toilet paper/soap dispensers, those rotating toilet seat covers from O'Hare Airport, etc. I think it would be so cool to be able to use a public restroom without ever having to touch anything with your hands except the toilet paper and the soap and water in the sink. The only thing I've never seen implemented anywhere else is automatic doors on the stalls...that might be a bit harder but I'm sure it could be done (the only problem would be making absolutely sure they didn't malfunction...).
I know this seems cheesy, but I remember the first place I ever used a sink with a motion sensor was at the Disneyland Hotel and the next time I went I asked my parents if we could go back to the hotel again so I could use that amazing sink. My friends and I talked about it for literally weeks after we went.
I know most kids these days have seen automated components in bathrooms, so the reaction to automatic sinks probably wouldn't be as extreme as ours back in 1992 or whatever, but it's rare for people to install all of them at once, and I think it would be kind of a neat touch. Americans and tourists alike are obsessed with hygiene in public places...and c'mon, even after how many years, those toilet seat covers in O'Hare airport seem really futuristic and cool to me.
It would be a low cost thing (hey, if my school can afford a lot of this stuff, so can Disney) and I really think I would go to Tomorrowland expressly to use a really snazzy restroom. Plus, I think it fits with the theming a heck of a lot more than a bunch of Pixar stuff.
What do you think? Bathroom of the future?
