When Dave Reynolds’ family laughed at him for falling off the toilet in the dark, he created a glow-in-the-dark toilet seat and laughed all the way to the bank.
The Pennsylvania man had been trying to sit on the toilet in a new house and wound up falling into the bathtub. He wasn’t seriously hurt, just a bruised body–and ego, after he became the butt of family jokes.
He called up his friend Tom Fittler and together they came up with a way to manufacture glowing seats that give off just enough light to let you safely navigate any bathroom, without lighting up the whole room.
Their company, Night Glow Seats, has since shipped the invention around the world to those who’ve taken a shine to the idea.
Let’s hope hotels pick up this idea and run with it.
