Nick Schulz writes in The Crappiest Invention of All Time (Why the auto-flushing toilet must die.):
After a stint of telecommuting, I recently returned to working in a large downtown building. My office shares a men’s room with everyone who works on our level. The bathroom sports three stalls, each of which is outfitted with the most uncivilized technology of the modern age—the hands-free, automatic-flush toilet bowl.
Maybe we should stick to ol’ fashioned toilets till we come up with more usable designs.
