The founder of Microsoft has turned his attention to providing toilet facilities to 2.5 billion people.

Think Progress said:

As the winner of the Reinvent the Toilet challenge, the team gets another $100,000 to fine-tune the device, which is a bit more complicated than your ordinary pot.

You'll have to upgrade it every 4 years to stay compatible with major toilet paper brands though...

The toilet works, but its clunky. It needs something to lay over it, to make it more user-friendly. At first it will work great, but then it will evolve into a toilet that's twice is big, twice as slow, and difficult to use, but you will have no choice but to use it because it is industry standard. Fortunately, toilet support will be available for a nominal fee.You have to make sure to upgrade/update every so often though, otherwise it will mysteriously start clogging and overflowing.

This seems like a probable future.

Hey - The PA Dutch have been doing a similar recycling effort for centuries!  Good old cow manure in hay.

Totally laughable crap, excuse the pun. Guess what happens with his high-tech solar power crapper the moment Bills foundation installs it a typical third-world hellhole. The usable parts get stolen, and the rest trashed.

Just shows in what kind of lala land our elites are living.
