Creating Energy for Electricity From Toilet Flushes...

The HighDro Power captures the energy of falling wastewater... A.K.A. your bathwater, sink drains and stinky toilet flushes...! Created by industrial design graduate, Tom Broadbent, from Leicester's De Montfort University in the UK.

"The inspiration for HighDro Power was literally a 'Eureka!' moment that came when I emptied a bath in a hotel and found that it cleared very quickly and with a large amount of force," explains Broadbent, who built a working prototype, seen above. "It seemed logical that this energy should be harnessed in some way to create green electricity and help governments meet targets and it filled an obvious gap in the market."
sigh...I always knew my toilet flushes were meant for something greater.
