Aim

To improve the experience of using a washroom by keeping its floor drier without using manual cleaning efforts.

Targeted Problems

Existing Solutions

Like linear drain tend to make the drainage faster and probably improve the solution a little.

Motivation

My problem was with the whole scenario was more fundamental as in why isn’t the function of drainage architected into the tiles itself. Two specific things describe led to the eureka moment to the proposed solution in the next section.

THE BIG HERO 6 MICROBOTS

A lot of smaller individual units with independent function unite together to attain a high order function.

AND, THE ESCALATOR

Proposed Solution

Prototype

The prototype plan consists of two rows of tiles with 3 tiles each and a linear drainage to collect everything to a single point, with whole setup fit together using interlocking shapes.
