The toilet of the future incorporates some old and instinctual positions that are born with humans when it is time to get rid of waste. People have been sitting on the same toilet for the last 130 years, with very little tweaking of the john. When the throne is tweaked it is mostly for aesthetics. Not this time, there's nothing pretty about this toilet, but they say it is comfortable for doing your morning constitution!

According to the Huffington Post on Dec. 9, the toilet of the future offers the position of squatting when making a bowel movement, which is actually the best position for doing your daily deed.

The toilet of the future was created by Central Saint Martins University graduates, Pierre Papet, Victor Johnson and Samuel Sheard. They have a plumbing company interested in making this toilet, also known as the Well-Being Toilet.

This toilet aims to improve your bathroom posture and to make your bathroom experience, smooth, so to speak. The toilet is still in the prototype stage, but it has tons of scientific research backing its position. The ideal position for defecation is squatting and this is what you will do while on this toilet.

One day this Well-Being Toilet may be in a bathroom near you!
