Japan's Poop-Powered Bike Completes 870 Mile Cross-Country Journey

Ever felt the need to visit the toilet while stuck in a traffic jam? That won't be a problem with TOTO's environmentally-conscious Toilet Bike Neo: it lets you do your business while you drive, and uses your waste for fuel. That's right, this none-too-subtle bike is powered by the driver's fecal matter, household sewage and livestock waste, with the specially-designed engine extracting the stool's biogas and converting it into energy to power the motorbike. TOTO, a toilet manufacturer by trade, also added a few other road-friendly features for the driver: a set of speakers to entertain onlookers with music, and apparently, the bike can also talk. 

Most recently, the poop-powered motorbike also completed an 870 mile roadtrip across Japan, passing through cities such as Kobe and Kyoto with a maximum speed of 45mph. While TOTO says that the 837-pound bike isn't set for mass production, wouldn't it be fun to take the Toilet Bike Neo out for a spin?
