Silicon Valley has reinvented the pay toilet. But this time, you have to use an app to get in, yielding metadata (foeterdata?) to the powers that be.

You cannot democratize access to utilities by making a gated community of smartphone and subscriber users."
Find and securely access modern restrooms – all through your smartphone ...

Trains may not be the most popular means of conveyance nowadays, but chances are you grew up playing with toy trains or building a model set to wrap around the Christmas tree.
