....Inspired by (and shamelessly born of) The Kneeler.
Very simple. A molded urine-resistant plastic urinal-shaped thingy has clamps on either side. You simply snap it on the standard model home toilet, do your business, and then grab a cup and flush it out. Or clean it in the bathtub. If you're
a man. Can be used with the seat down. Sounds so simple that it's gotta be thought of somewhere, but I can't find it, so here it is.
Real-world suggestion given to me: "you could make it so that it swings over to the other side." So perhaps it could be designed to swing away from the toilet, and in that way make it easier for females (like myself!) to deal with.
It occurs to me that the biggest problem is that this whole thing would be quite ugly. To combat this, it will have a nice storage and cleaning box to sit in when not in use. Works well in male-dominant houses with more than one bathroom.
Another option for your home urinating comfort. [polartomato, Jul 07 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]
A similar idea. Redundancy? You be the judge. [polartomato, Jul 07 2002, last modified Oct 05 2004]
||I'm shocked that an idea this great hasn't been baked at least here somewhere, but you're right... it's not there. At least I can't find anything...
||Found: a piss adapter on the DaVinci site. It's a purple orblike thing with an open portion that Mr. Winky can peek in, extending down to the toilet through a tube.
||It's still not quite what I had in mind. The "One and Only" Snap-on Urinal is a combination splash guard and urinal funnel, and can be used in a more relaxed fashion. It looks like a more traditional urinal and is meant to convert your standard potty to a urinal.
||Ah well, d'ya think this is redundant?
||I think the device must have urinal like erection support, so man don't have to use it face down.
