Pocket urinals hit the streets of Cologne

Published: 15 Aug 12 08:00 CET
Wee-splattered paving stones and smelly park corners could soon be a thing of the past in the proud, ancient city of Cologne, where a German company has begun marketing its "pocket urinal."
The disposable single-use urinal has been developed to answer the call of nature when public conveniences are, well, inconvenient.
The Adamus weighs just 26 grammes and can be folded into a handy 13x10cm rectangle for today's people on the go. It holds up to three-quarters of a litre of liquid. 

The Adamus for Men get a hole, six centimetres in diameter, through which to direct their golden streams of waste fluid, while the lucky ladies get an extra funnel attachment, coloured pink and catchily named "Pippi Lissi." 

Once filled, the pocket toilet is designed to be sealed and thrown into a bin without spillage. "I can even turn it upside down and none falls out," said Adamus marketing director Karsten Nordhausen.
It is believed that seeing people with crossed legs trying to walk will be a thing of the past just by the invention of this wee thing.

The bags, which cost €1.49 for a single or €129 for a 100-pack, contain super-absorbent polymer crystals, which can absorb "1,000 times their own volume in liquid," according to Nordhausen. These crystals then turn the liquid into an odour-free gel within 20-30 seconds.

But he offered a word of warning about the urinal's capacity. "Three-quarters of a litre is plenty for everyday use," he said. "But some people with, shall we say, trained beer bladders might need to be careful."
IF YOU NEED A WEE STOP.... WHERE? 
DOES IT MAKE YOU INVISIBLE?
