Created for Personal Fest, a music festival in Argentina, ordinary-looking toilets were ‘hacked’ to perform a tune together.

Personal, a mobile company in Argentina, organizes a music festival each year called ‘Personal Fest,’ which attracts more than 50,000 people. They partnered with agency TBWA Buenos Aires to transform the portable toilets from a neglected part of the event into a more enjoyable experience.

They ‘hacked’ them with some electronics and pots of colorful paint to create ‘Rhythmical Potties’. These seven brightly-colored toilets each played a different sound, and they lit up and made music only when they were occupied.

This made waiting to use the porta-potties more fun, as people could listen to the catchy sounds while standing outside. Also, it created a kind of  interactive installation, and if seven people contributed by occupying all of them at once, they played a synchronized tune.
