Men. You know how some urinals has a “fly” graphic and/or a smell-suppressing urinal mat in the urinal? The “fly” is there to get you to ‘aim’ correctly to prevent, you know, the pee from splashing around. The mat sometimes serve double duty to prevent the same mess from happening.
But what about toilet itself? Surely it needs no such measures? Nope, it does, according to Canadian company, New Normal (yes, the same company that brought to your the eye-saving screen protector).
The company has created what it called The Piss Pad that, when sticks to your toilet bowl, let men taking a piss aim at and consequently, prevent the splash mess. Yup. You heard that right. An invention to prevent men’s piss from going places.
“The Piss Pad is a highly dense, diffusing target that attaches to the back of your toilet bowl to diffuse urine splashback. Its robust and functional design is the first in-home urine splashback tool of its kind. ”
New Normal goes all science-sy with it by describing it as using “dense redirecting poly fibers,” but somehow, just somehow, it remains us of 3M car mat.
Tell me we are not the only one who think that it looks like a cut out from a 3M car mat. But hey, if works to prevent splash back, who’s complaining right?
Then again, you have to be absolutely adamant about preventing piss from going places to be investing in 19 Canadian dollar (about US$14) for a piece.
