I'm all for eco-living, but I can just see something disastrous happening with this toilet/washing machine combination. I have a hard enough time keeping loose socks off of the floor when I put the laundry in the hamper after washing. Can you imagine what would happen if I tried to empty The Washup? This design is still in the concept stage, and it does have a lot of cool ideas going for it. The design is based on the premise that there's absolutely no reason to put fresh, potable water in the toilet, so why not recycle wash water as toilet water? This water-saving idea is great, but I don't see any reason why the washing machine itself can't be moved a bit further away from the toilet bowl. Maybe we'll see that re-design in the Washup 2.0.
