They say necessity is the mother of invention. And, as we all know, sometimes nothing is more of a necessity than finding the nearest public restroom.
A clever entrepreneur has found a solution for that problem by introducing a product: Go Guy from U-R-IN Control, a pocket urinal that fits in the palm of your hand. It’s billed as easy to use and easy to dispose of and comes with a handy hand wipe for quick clean-up.
The company reports that one Rhode Island police department is already using the products — giving them to folks who find themselves in need of a potty break while otherwise detained (such as in the back of a police car).
The company also claims it could save cities millions of dollars in clean-up costs if the Go-Guy were handed out to the homeless.
