From the Dutch company Urilift International, comes the UriLift, a public urinal that can be stored underground during the day and set to pop up in the evening hours, when it is most likely to be needed. This stainless-steel, semi permanent toilet has three separate urinals that can be used simultaneously. For most of the time, UriLift is completely hidden underground; when it is needed, a remote control makes it pop up above the ground. UriLift has provisions for both lighting and heating and is vandalism-proof, making it a great option for areas frequented by late-night revelers.
