Drop the kids off at the pool then drop your kids off at the pool.

Japanese toilet manufacturing giant Toto unveiled today their new Toilet Bike Neo, a three-wheeled motorcycle fueled entirely by human waste. This ridiculous looking bike has a toilet instead of a seat and runs on biogas converted from human feces.

While it remains to be seen whether this is a promotional gimmick or a revolutionary bit of engineering, the project is part of Toto’s “Green Challenge” campaign aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the bathroom by 50 percent by 2017.

The poo-cycle, which also talks and plays music, will log 600 miles across Japan on a promotional tour, starting at Toto’s headquarters in Kitakyushu and ending in Tokyo.
