"What It's Like To Use LA's Singing, Self-Cleaning, Automated Park Restroom"

LAist:

I was a little surprised that a push-button automated toilet paper dispenser measured me out 24 inches of tissue.

...

After several minutes of standing still with my microphone . . . [a voice from the speaker said], "Warning: internal scanners show this unit to be empty, if occupied, move around to allow detection."

I didn't want to have the doors pop open or get spritzed with disinfectant (to be honest, I was a bit afraid of what happens inside the unit when it launches into its unoccupied self-cleaning mode), so I waved my arms around and got a bit more alone time.
