I think carbon fiber is one of the coolest materials ever invented. It can be formed into just about any shape, is extremely lightweight, and somehow still very strong. It’s amazing how the physics of weaving fibers together and then fixing them with resin provides such properties. I’ve got quite a few carbon fiber things these days, from a bezel for my watch to the interior of my car to my keychain. One thing I don’t have though, is a carbon fiber toilet seat.
Yes, for just $480, you can have your very own lightweight and durable toilet seat, made from carbon fiber. According to the guys at Carbon Fiber Gear: “The manufacturing process uses the finest epoxy resin system and 550,000 psi tensile carbon fiber. The carbon fiber features a 2 x 2 twill pattern, the weave looks absolutely gorgeous! Pictures do no justice.” That’s a pretty lofty description of something you’re going to sit your bare ass on and poop through. Still, it does look pretty cool as toilet seats go.
I’m not sure how this would look sitting on an ordinary white porcelain toilet bowl though. It would be cool if someone made an entire toilet from carbon fiber. Then again, that would probably cost five grand.
My favorite part of the product description: “Due to the nature of the product, sales are final.” LOL.
