KAO, Yu-Ching / Sweet burden – toilet cushion

KAO, Yu-Ching
KAO, Yu-Ching

Modern people seem to like sugary drinks and the chances to develop diabetes. In order to warn people to pay attention on their diet, we invent a device which can monitor the sugar in their urine while saving the energy and water at the same time. Heating up the water and pour it into the water-proof PVC plastic cushion. After urinating, the cushion will release the warn water to flush the toilet. The water contains Benedict liquid and will change the color when mixing with the urine. The colors may vary from red, orange, green to blue according the sugar levels. The user will know right away how high the sugar level is in their urine.
