Invention #254123 - Toilet\ Bathroom Redesign

In my opinion there is a serious design flaw that exists in almost every bathroom.

The placement of the exhaust fan.

The fan is usually placed above the toilet in the ceiling. The problem here is that gas that is being generated by your butt has to travel up past your nose to escape, it is also traveling through a narrow slit in your legs. A narrow slit that also holds your goods

If you can image for a second a grill. You place wood chips on a grill and put the lid on to give it that smoky flavor. Open the vent a little so some of the smell can escape and the taste can seep right into your food.

You toilet is a lot like a grill. And your feces and gas is a lot like wood chips.

But is that really the flavor you want seeping into your junk?

The design I would like to see is some kind of vacuum system that exists inside the toilet that would suck the gas and fowl odor down and away from the goods hence preserving their freshness. This vacuum could even be powered by a little green turbine that produces and stores power as the flushing motion spins its rotors.

I see this as a viable product for the high end wealthy consumer but not a mainstream proudct due to cost. I could easily see this on MTV Cribs in some 'stars' home.

I really have no idea how you are not rich. Even if some of your ideas wouldn't work, at least a few of them could.

Thanks for the lovely morning thoughts ;)

I think this is a great idea - definitely high end.... My ex-father in-law rigged his toilet to run hot water through the bowl... so the seat was always nice and toasty... great in the winter... kind of creepy in the summer.

I have no problem smelling my own gases. It's the other people's gases I have a problem with.

I was under the impression that the sole purpose of the exhaust fan was as white noise.
