Portable Toilet For Vans, SUV's
If you spend a lot of time on the road, you might want to check out the Indipod, a portable toilet that comes complete with a "privacy bubble" and a 12-volt fan to blow up the bubble. Inventors Barbara May and Dr. James Shippen gave the new toilet an exhaustive trial run during a 2,000 mile trip from northern Scotland to southern Italy during which they never got out of the van they were driving.
  "The Indipod worked perfectly," says May.
  The 22-in. wide, 21-in. deep by 13-in. wide porta potty fits inside any large vehicle and can be used for 8 days before emptying.
  To use, just plug it into a cigarette lighter for about 30 sec. to inflate the bubble, provide circulation and block out personal noises. Then, unzip the bubble's opening and use. Afterwards, unplug the cord and flatten the bubble back into its original case.
  The toilet holds its chemically pleasant smelling contents until disposed of in a flushable toilet.
  Sells for $376 plus about $150 shipping (to North America).
