An inventor has come up with what he claims is ‘one of the greatest technological breakthroughs of the 21st century.’
It’s a gadget to let men have a wee even when they’re behind the wheel – with urine discreetly trickling into any bottle or can.
The £19 ‘Car Pool’ was funded via KickStarter and has a tube which fits over any bottle or can, forming a urine-tight seal, and is designed to stay in position during a journey.
Inventor Eric Bert, 36, of Brooklyn, worked as a structural engineer and says he often found himself caught short behind the wheel.

Bert says, ‘ ‘I would be at the top of a bridge hundreds of feet high and wouldn’t have anywhere to go to the bathroom. Then a lightbulb went off in my head and I came up with the idea for The Car Pool.
‘At this point I decided I really wanted to do something important with my life, make a change on a global scale, do something that would make the world a better place, not only for our generation, but for our children, and our children’s children, so I quit my job and developed The Car Pool.
‘It took me a long time to come up with the final design and find the materials to develop one of the greatest technological breakthroughs of the 21st century.’
