An International Space Station style recycling bathroom for us terrestrials


The Cirrus MVR is a full bathroom — with a sink, toilet and tub — that's designed to be completely enclosed and portable. Designed by Michael Trudgeon for the Australian outback where water isn't always readily available, the Cirrus has its own recycling system that keeps it running longer on less water, though you may not want to think about where that water has been while you're using it. It doesn't look like the most comfortable place to do your business, but its steel construction, meager water needs and the fact that it folds up so nicely make it as rugged as it needs to be to go where bathrooms are typically outhouses or temporary fixtures.

Trudgeon picked up a Bathroom Innovation Award in '08 for his design.
