Hands up if you’re scrolling through your phone right now while sitting on the loo?

If so, you’ll appreciate this read even more.

As you may know, Japan is famous for its toilets, with funky tech innovations like seat warming and deoderisation available at the press of a button.

So, it’s fitting that another revolutionary bathroom-based invention has arisen from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Wash Your Hands and Your Phone

Japanese company, WOTA, has developed a sink system called WOSH that allows customers to not only clean their hands but sanitise their smartphones. 

The invention uses a hydrological cycle system and deep ultraviolet lights to disinfect phones in roughly 30 seconds.

Watch it in action! This video clip was reportedly filmed in a McDonald’s restroom in Japan.

As several studies have suggested, smartphones are perennial germ collectors – no doubt exacerbated by cubicle-centric scrolling!

With that being the case, we hope tech innovations like this continue to be ‘flushed out’ across the globe.
