  Portable Bubble Toilet for your Car
BBC NEWS | Technology | UK company launches in-car toilet: "A portable, in-car lavatory has been launched by a British firm for use by people with medical conditions, as well as families with small children.

The Indipod, made by Bromsgrove-based Daycar, is aimed at people with bowel and bladder problems.

The chemical toilet is housed in an inflatable 'bubble' which is powered from the car's cigarette lighter.

It is designed to be used in multi-purpose vehicles, four-wheel drives and estate cars.

The Indipod is on display at Naidex 2005, an exhibition of products for disabled people at the NEC in Birmingham.

When not is use, the Indipod folds away into a bag the size of a suitcase and weighs 8kg.

'When we developed it we thought it would be for families, kids going out for the day or on holiday,' Daycar managing director, Barbara May, told the BBC News website.

'But we've had an excellent response from people with medical conditions.'"
