"Transformers, robots in disguise" that's what the TV commercials used to blare out into my living room while my kids were watching Spongebob or Fairly Odd-Parents back in the day. Transformers are machines that can change into robots and do amazing things if you're not familiar with the brand.

While this "transformer" doesn't really change into anything other than a toilet with different dimensions once you see it in action you can appreciate the connection between the reversible robots and this modern piece of plumbing technology.
