Two Japanese companies have collaborated for what might be the year’s most head-scratching invention: a toilet goalie.
TOTO, a toilet manufacturer, and toto, a sports lottery organization, have developed the "Super Great Toilet Keeper" (SGTK) as an ambassador for an campaign that supports green initiatives in Japan.
The SGTK uses two 250 frames-per-second cameras to judge oncoming soccer balls' speed and trajectory, then fires another ball to block the shot. The video, below, demonstrates SGTK’s effectiveness against Japanese soccer Great Tatsuhiko 'Dragon' Kubo.
Soccer fans will reportedly get to see the toilet live before it’s available for rentals at $7,500 a pop. (Get it?)
Whatever you do, just don’t get it confused with your normal, everyday toilet.
That mistake will leave a mark.
