Mini Cloaca: Desktop-Sized Poop Machine

0aacloamini.jpg

Regine from WMMNA (I love their newish form logo/search box) went to Wim Delvoye’s latest installation of his Cloaca series where he was showing off his newest model, “Mini Cloaca.” Delvoye’s machines take food, grind it up, add it to a slurry of digestive juices, and make—more or less—shit. While previous models were almost industrial-sized, the Mini consumes about as much food as a breakfast meal.

I would love to have a Mini Cloaca on my desk, invite people in for meetings, and then activate the machine after they find something I find distasteful. Then I would open the trap door.

    Desktop-sized is a great improvement over the hulking behemoth cloaca machines of a few years ago, but these won’t really catch on until the portable models come out. The hitch seems to be the power requirements – rechargeable batteries don’t work for shit.

    I’m not interested until it automatically makes jenkem.

    And yet they didn’t make it shaped like a duck. No sense of history.

    When do they come out with the model that makes a perfect replica of meat with the poop as a waste byproduct?
