Autoclave Toilet

A toilet that sterilizes itself in a sealed stall.
  [vote for,

The stall itself would be an autoclave chamber. Close the door and then the stall would fill with pressurized steam.

The toilet appliance would have to beem made of stainless steel or some other heatproof material.

Of course, it could not be used until sufficiently cooled after a steam cycle.

       (how does a toilet beem?)   

       More sterilization freaks trying to make us all into bubble-boys. A little invisible fecal residue from the last guy never bothered me one bit.

       There is nothing worse than a warm toilet seat.

       Huge energy expenditure for little added sterility over what a self-washing toilet(-seat) already does today. There are very few surfaces you actually come into any meaningful contact with, so disinfecting the whole room after every use is simply overzealous. Apart from that, if the guy preceeding you had misjudged his ballistics a little you still would have the colorful remainder of his error to be grossed out by, even though it would be sterile by then.

       Agree with [Gordon] and [marklar]. Also, stainless steel toilet seat = yuck.
