Nowadays, people have been more creative than ever. Even the most mundane of public places can get an unexpected makeover.

Just take a peak at these weird and crazy public bathrooms around the world. If you are adventurous enough, come, sit and flush at these strangest bathrooms ever!

In London, there is a public restroom made of glass. Well, that glass is one way. People outside can only see a mirrored box but can’t actually see who’s inside.

#2. Japan’s video game toilet

Sega created a unique contribution to today’s current gaming system, and that is the Sega Toylet. These “Toylets” have sensors at the urinal base measuring the force and impact of your pee, allowing you to play the game.

#3. Giant egg comfort rooms

You can find the weird looking toilet eggs at an award-winning bar and restaurant in London called the Sketch. Eerie music plays inside the giant egg bathrooms while you do your business. Whether that sound is intended to make you feel at ease or not, it’s just plain creepy.

#4. New York’s automatic public restroom

Unlike other public bathrooms, you can use the automatic bathroom for only 15 minutes. A warning sound goes off when there are three minutes left from the allotted time, and if you’re done early, you get three strips of tissue paper for cleaning up. Whether you finish or not, doors automatically open up. Good luck with that!

#5. Pop up urinals in London

During the daytime, these toilets are nowhere to be found. However, when the sun is down, it pops up from the ground for party goers to use.

#6. 30-story drop urinal

A fancy restaurant in Hong Kong gives guests a great view of the city, but it doesn’t just stop there. Inside their bathroom, urinals stand against a 30-story pavement below. Will you be able to empty your bladder with that height?

Interestingly, a new study confirms that the chambers in the pyramid "can collect and concentrate electromagnetic energy." The researchers pointed out that the pyramid can both scatter or absorb the energy in its chambers. Not surprisingly, some believe that the scientists have found that Giza's Great Pyramid is a large ancient solar cell.

The Great Pyramid is the oldest structure listed in the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
