Sick of searching for a bathroom or even worse having to wait in line? Japanese company KDDI Corp. is here to help. They've created an app listing the nearest available toilet.
The service will first be targets at office buildings before moving on to public toilets. “People often waste time by looking around for an available toilet on various floors or by waiting until one becomes available,” KDDI spokesman Daisuke Maruo explains. “We believe this service will help people waste less time.”
There is one creepy aspect of the app. For offices, managers will be alerted if a stall is closed for too long. According to KDDI, that's to "deal with any possible accidents or troubles that may occur."
