Gotta Go Briefcase

Looking for a briefcase that is multi-functional? The Gotta Go Briefcase will surely inspire the business-savvy men and women of the world climbing the corporate ladder who will stop at nothing to get an edge… not even to take a dump. In today’s fast paced corporate market, every minute counts and often can be the difference between success and failure. No longer is it feasible or convenient to take time out for toilet breaks, especially in taxis, subways or rail systems where facilities aren’t always provided. Now, for the GM who has to take a BM, there is the Gotta Go Briefcase. A full functioning briefcase that also doubles as a portable lavatory.


Top Japanese business professionals participated in extensive market research in ways to better maximize time efficiency and encourage higher job performance. As a result, Niban Too Corp. of Japan came up with the Gotta Go Briefcase for an extra edge over corporate competitors.

The water proof briefcase retains an elegant yet durable appearance with high quality Mahogany leather, a strong lightweight aluminum internal structure, and stainless steel bowl with generously equipped sealing lid. Quietly and discreetly go about your personal "business" anywhere you please with a fold out leather privacy panel which tucks away neatly to the side when you have completed your multi-tasking. A toilet paper dispenser easily swings out and can be conveniently stored in an inconspicuous storage compartment under the padding [for added discretion] when not in use.

Included with the Gotta Go Briefcase are a small tray with cup holder (clips onto the privacy panel), attachable vanity mirror, and refillable hand sanitizing dispenser. The newspaper and air freshener are not included but recommended.

*Maximum weight capacity is 80 Kilos (approx.175 lbs.). Exceeding the recommended weight will void all warranties and may result in rupture of waste tank, possible bacterial contamination of briefcase contents, and massive stench.

*Note – There has been a bit of stripping photo credits and plagiarism of my articles, but rest assured my blog will always give the most comprehensive and accurate information of inventions and concepts I cover, as it is always the original source here at American Inventor Spot. Thanks for reading. - Rodd

This is the most ridiuclous

This is the most ridiuclous contraption ever.  The iage of going in the subway just cracks me up.  Could you imagine the look on people's faces.

On a more serious note though, the idea of a portable device for when you need a bathroom is a very compelling idea.  Who hasn't wished they could just do what they needed to to when they needed to do it?

Imagine going to a meeting,

Imagine going to a meeting, slamming down the briefcase onto the conference table, and saying Gentlemen, I have something important to share with you.

 

Voila....

Diapers

Isn't this what adult diapers are for?  Just ask that lady astranaut.  AM I RIGHT PEOPLE?

No, that isn't what diapers are for

Diapers are for long trips wherein the driver/astronaut wants to covertly kidnap and attempt to murder a woman suspected of having an affair with the astronaut's husband.  The briefcase is for shitty--but not necessarily shady--business practices wherein the wearer wants to overtly do business while conducting business.  The first case is out of plain view and the second one is in plain view.  The first one is also silent but potentially deadly, whereas the second one is verbose and nondeadly.  I'd say that makes them quite different.

No Really

Seriously - that's what diapers are for.  I am a GM "on the move" and I wear diapers all the time.  As a matter of fact, I am going number two right now.

Takes the PortaPotty to a new level.

And everybody laughed at the BladderBuddy!

Please check out my invention at Bottle Sling - Invention Gallery .

Oh, No, Bill

But out of curiosity, do you prefer "Depends" or "Serenity"?  Which is more absorbent?

PortaPotty Obsolete--Ha

It also makes the bathroom doorclip totally unnecessary.

Fascinating...

I like the idea and model, but the picture is so painfully shopped that it smells like a fresh loaf from behind a bull's bread.

Big Crap

There will be a spillover effect and more for employees to gossip about around the water cooler.

Wow

This reminds me of those embarrassing dreams when you go to the bathroom in front of everyone. Sure a portable potty is needed, but a briefcase....

Combination Lock

It looks like the briefcase combination lock uses a series of letters instead of numbers.  Any five digits can be used, but ECOLI is most commonly found.

Great find.  Do you think

Great find.  Do you think we'll see this on Season two of American Inventor?

similar but.....

......... not same. Hmmmm,  My first time seeing that article (which came out after gotta go briefcase, incidently).  I guess great minds must think alike OR it was same company that made both of them. :o)

I just want to know if there is, or should be, a gym bag version of this?  Maybe  the "Duffel Bag Dumper.

manufacturer's contact info??

Hi, I'm working on the article for Gizmodo.jp. Do you know where its manufacturer, Niban Too Corp., is based? The paper in the photo looks like Rafu Shimpo, a Japanese local paper published in LA. So, I'm just wondering if it's really from Japan...

Oh, well, maybe I'll just go ahead and ask my readers what they know about Niban Too Corp... thanks!

Response to "Umm....not much privacy"

I have a feeling that when someone first opens the briefcase, there may not be much privacy, but as s/he continues with business, there will be complete privacy.

 Also, the briefcase initially appears to be complete, but I think there should be a flyswatter attached.

Chindogu

This type of invention is a "chindogu" -- a simultaneously useable and useless invention that solves an every day problem in an unneccesarily elaborate or impractical way. For more examples, visit www.chindogu.com.

Gotta Go Briefcase

With this briefcase, employees can literally and figuratively have a shitty day at the office.

Perch for Briefcase

To avoid splashing your fine leather office chair, place the briefcase on a stool before putting your stool in it.

Options

I really like the idea and wonder if there is a more feminine model?  Also, would the ladies briefcase have an extra attachment for napkin/tampon disposal?  And, what about those paper toilet seat covers - for when you want to share with a friend *in need*?  My workplace would most likely order these in bulk, saves on bathroom break time!  Good going - keep up the good work!

 p.s Any forthcoming similarities for a children's version - like a backpack?

What do you mean, "pack up your shit and go.."?????

Go where?  I wouldn't take it all the home; I think I might accidentally leave the briefcase on the bus or subway.

 When the lucky finder opens it up to find out what treasures are inside, s/he will shout, "OH, SHIT!!!!!"
