In this modern age of unisex toilets one can be embarrassed by the prospect of a potential mate using the services soon after. Thankfully there is the Matchlighter 5000.
Simply drop a 20c/20p/25c piece into the machine and a mechanical hand inside the caged unit will grab a match, strike it and burn up those unwanted odours.
Now go buy that potential someone a drink, and in future, stay away from the free bar snacks.

I never thought of it in this way, but it would definitely keep out smells [DesertFox, Mar 11 2006]

       I have a vision:   

       Man exits cubicle, noticing that he's left a pretty nasty stink. Deposits 50p ($10) into the vending machine and out pops a little green sphere. Man picks up sphere, finds a pin - pulls it out. Goes up to cubicle, throws in sphere, slams door shut, dives onto floor with hands over ears, shouting "Fire in the Hole!".   

       Man picks himself up, washes hands, re-enters the bar and stays away from the free snacks.

       //Deposits 50p ($10) //Wow! I didn't realize that the foreign exchange rate had gotten so far out of whack! Last time I checked 50p came to about 86.5 cents USD.
