Japanese Park With Transparent Toilet Where LCD Glass Door Becomes Opaque/Transparent Functions
Normally, privacy is required when going to the toilet, right? A “transparent toilet” appeared in a park in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan. The reason why this toilet has a transparent design is that public toilets at night are prone to dead ends, but as long as the door is locked, the electronically controlled liquid crystal glass will become opaque.
- There is a “transparent toilet” in a park in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan
- This design is used to prevent criminals from hiding in the toilet cubicle and ambush
- Just walk in and lock the door, the glass will become completely opaque
Recently, Japanese netizens tweeted a hot post about a transparent toilet. The use of this design is to prevent criminals from hiding in the toilet cubicle and assaulting passers-by who come in to go to the toilet when the night is small and dim. Passers-by can also see the situation inside to avoid danger.
When you need to use the toilet, just walk in and lock the door, and the glass will become completely opaque. The principle is that electronically controlled liquid crystal glass is used in the toilet, and the glass interlayer is covered with liquid crystal molecules. When it is energized, the arrangement of the liquid crystal molecules will be changed to allow light to pass through. If the power is cut off, the liquid crystal molecules will revert to irregular arrangements, the incident light will be scattered, and the glass will become opaque.
