Biopod is A Redesigned Port-A-Potty to Provide You with Better Hygiene and Comfort

Port-a-Potty or portable toilet hasn’t been redesigned since its conception in 1940s, except that maybe the materials. Keeping this in mind, Cassie Stepanek wanted to give this toilet a make over. Stepanek had to start from a scratch in order to understand how the portable toilet is used in our society, who uses it, who maintains it, as well as where we use it and why we are forced to do so.

Biopod is a redesigned portable toilet that incorporates 5 aspects into the design: privacy, cleanliness, space, ventilation, and grey water system. All these aspects cover the overall design from injection molding to your feces floating down the sewage line. Aside from doing extensive research, interviewing people alongside also give stories about touch, taste, smell, and feelings. Yep, from that interview, there are 2 things for certain: no one wants to touch a single thing inside or outside a port-a-potty, and second, 80% people hover the toilet seat and they don’t sit at all.

Parabosol – Portable Solar Powered Water Treatment System for Remote Areas

In contrast with the scarcity of our drinkable water, we have plenty of sun power, waiting to be taken advantage. Parabosol is a portable solar powered water treatment system that uses parabolic mirror to boil water at a temperature up to 400-degree Celcius. This project aims to bring safe drinking water for people in remote areas, additional filter is also done by using sand filter and carbon filter where the sand filter catches any sand particles then the carbon filter removes any bad odor.

How it works?

Between those 2 filtrations when the sand filtered water collected in water container, the parabolic mirror also starts the purification process. All steam comes from the tank behind the parabolic mirror would condensate in bronze spine placed above carbon filter. Overall, there are 4 containers in this system: one for contaminated water, one for purification process, and two containers to keep all clean, drinkable water. The system is claimed to be able to clean up to 170 liters of water in a single use.

Toilet Paper Roll Redesign by Sheng-Hung Lee and Josipa Dodig

Even simple thing can be upgraded for better functionality, take a look at this project: Toilet Paper Roll Redesign. It’s a project submitted by Sheng-Hung Lee to Tuvie, it aims to prevent the bottom of tissue touches any surface. You can read the explanation from the designer below.

People use toilet paper for a variety of reasons e.g. wiping up spills, removing makeup, bathroom hygiene and cleaning chores. But people are prone to put toilet paper on table or put kitchen paper towel near sink in kitchen without putting it in toilet roll holder or toilet tissue reserve canister. The dust, bacteria, water or oil stain would easily attach to bottom surface of paper. Therefore we redesign toilet paper roll, as slogan goes: Turn paper roll upside down, make dust go away! New toilet paper roll is made from disinfected recycling paper pulp. Don’t purchase toilet roll holder, because toilet paper roll is the best holder. After toilet paper is used up, compressible structure design makes users press down on toilet paper roll without effort and reduce waste size. The design draws the public attention to care more about the hygiene and environmental protection issue.

Product Instructions

  1. Tear toilet paper roll inside with precut dash line.
  2. Turn bottom part upside down and then put it back. The wavy part should be visible outside the toilet paper roll.
  3. Now it becomes a toilet paper roll stand.
  4. After using toilet paper, easily compress the wavy part to make paper roll flatten in order to reduce the waste.
