    Default State of the art restrooms at new Daxing Airport in Beijing

    The two things that really stand out:

    1. There are video screens built into the floor of the restroom stall (!)
    2. The stall doors appear to be clear, but they actually use "snap glass", which magically turns the door opaque when someone is using it. (We installed it for one of our customers, but it was a very specialized situation - not a freaking bathroom).

    I think there was a CSI Miami episode where snap glass was a major plot point, but maybe I'm making that up. Does the door fill with some kind of gas to make it opaque?

    The video screens freak me out, but so does the fact she filmed all of that in portrait mode.

    I don't think I'd want to use one. Give me a nice solid door that can't malfunction and go back to being clear at an inopportune moment.

    No, you’re not. I remember that episode. It was in some night club/lounge.

    I remember in 2001 when I was in Reading, England, and experienced restrooms with those glass stalls. I finally did use it, but after watching to see if it really worked when other people went it. It still bothered me while I was in there, because I could still see the people outside the stall (in the bar area as well).

    That would freak me out to be able to see outside the stall. I don't even like when you can see through the space between the door and the frame.
