Urinal and sink combo offers guys one-stop bathroom shopping

This bizarre contraption is a urinal that lets guys do their thing, then gives them a place to wash their hands without moving a step.

My first reaction on seeing this was "eeew, that's gross", but the more you think about it, the more it seems to make sense.

The dirty sink water is used to flush the urinal, so the treehuggers will like the way it saves water. It also takes up a lot less room than a separate sink and urinal, so they can fit more into a small bathroom reducing the waiting times. (Yes ladies, even us guys sometimes have to wait in line.)

Because the sink is right there, it might also encourage the less hygienically inclined to wash up.
