Title: TOILET AND OPERATION THEREOF
Abstract:
A toilet is disclosed, having a bowl (400) for receiving human waste and a wiper (402). The bowl (400) is moveable between a waste receiving position and a waste emptied position. This movement is provided based on a waste emptying actuation by a user of the toilet. The wiper (402) is movable to remove residual waste from an inside surface of the bowl (400) by wiping the inside surface of the bowl (400). The movement of the wiper (402) is coupled to the movement of the bowl (400), the wiper (402) being configured to move during the movement of the bowl (400), for at least a part of the movement of the bowl (400) between the waste receiving position and the waste emptied position.
