The outside looks unusually clean, but maybe switzerland takes care of their toilets :P

The inside is legit though, unless somebody took the time to photoshop and exact reflection of the toilet/edge/outside of the box.

I dunno....I've only ever seen this one pic of these toilets, so it's probably photoshopped.
Without games my life would have no meaning.
Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

Nope, not photoshoped as far as I know, there from a guy at my dads work.

Also you can see the reflection of the green banner thats in the bottom pic in the side pannel of the top pic.

the fact that you dont see her reflection is a bit suspect, but you could blame that on the angle.

if it is a ps job, they did it real well - you can see things reflected on the outside that are then visible from the inside (bottom of green poster)

So it's a one way mirror right. well you can see through those once you're close enough and have enough light.

It looks pretty hokey to me. If it is real, it might have been some insane publicity stunt. I dunno! It's WEIRD.

Hmm, lets think, what's the saddest thing: going to the bathroom in the booth, or sitting there all day long just to laugh at people who do go to the bathroom inside?:P

snopes.com wrote:The concept of how we react to "seeing but not being seen" was put to the test by 38-year-old architectural artist Monica Bonvicini in December 2003, when her work entitled "Don't Miss A Sec" was installed at a construction site (the future home of the Chelsea College of Art and Design) across the road from London's Tate Britain museum. (The same work was also displayed at an art exhibition in Basel, Switzerland, in June 2004.) Bonvicini's creation is a public toilet enclosed within reflective glass walls that allow the user to see out but prevent those outside from seeing in, an exhibit that challenges whether we can adapt to the idea of being able to view others passing in close proximity to us while we engage in an activity which we don't want them to view — even when we know full well that they can't possibly see us.

Still seems like a stupid idea.
