Thirsty? This gadget turns your wee straight back into delicious water to drink

Why has no one thought of this before? A new gadget on Etsy gets rid of the need for tedious toilet visits – by letting you drink your own wee, straight from a cute, cone-shaped little ‘tap’.

The filter system claims to turn wee into ‘safe’ drinking water using a ‘conversion’ system.

From the looks of it, it’ll still be nice and warm, though, as you slurp it back up through the big straw on the £219 device.

Makers UV Production House says, ‘Convert your urine into clean drinking water safely with this genital garter attachment and drinking water conversion system.’

It’s on sale now – but what’s less clear is how (or if) it works.

Turning urine into drinking water is quite difficult, and usually involves boiling.

There IS a system on the International Space Station – below is Chris Hadfield demonstrating it – but it requires a concentrated salt or sugar solution to work.

So it’s not entirely clear whether this is a genuine, human-powered refreshment system – or some kind of art project. We wait in hope.
