Solution for long queues at the women’s loo?

They should, of course, just build more of them at places of public entertainment but at least temporary relief may soon be at hand for those emergency moments. A German company says it has designed the world’s first pocket urinal for women  — a disposable is a plastic bag fitted with absorbent polymers that turn urine into a gel that is sold under the brand name Ladybag.
It’s the size of a chocolate bar when folded, has a wide opening and can be used squatting, sitting or standing. Its gel can absorb half a liter — enough to process the average amount of urine per sitting — but the bag itself can hold a whole liter in an emergency.
Its designer, Eva Tinter, told Der Spiegel: “It can be used in cars, or to avoid dirty toilets or at open-air festivals when you don’t want to queue. You can just nip round the back of the toilet and use this.”
