Wherefore art thou, clean place to pee?
What a relief.
The next time you're looking for a clean place to pee, you can thank Winnipeg companies Spacecadet Design and Visual Lizard, good friends of the Creative Communications program and people who've gotta go the world over.
(Spacecadet was also the summer workplace of second-year advertising student Jarrett Moffatt, whose fingerprints are all over this application. In a good way.)
Their iPhone app - called "Where to Wee" - is the brainchild of former Blue Bomber Dave Pitcher. It lets users find and rate restrooms around the world, including salient details about said restrooms, like cleanliness, amenities, wheelchair access, and - I hope - refreshments.
Users can also take pictures of restrooms and submit them to Where to Wee, and enter "the best and worst toilet contest," coming soon.
My money is on the U.K. for winning "worst toilet;" having been there and seen Trainspotting, I know that there isn't a single flushable toilet to be found anywhere. Prove me wrong, British Isles!
Where to Wee will be available on iTunes soon. You can sign up here to be the first to find out when the app is ready.
