SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Using your iPad while taking a poop just got a little more hygienic.

The iPoop is wastebasket that doubles as an iPad or laptop stand, enabling those who already use their gadgets while pooping to continue doing so in a cleanlier way.

Creator Peter Reis says social media is “infiltrating every moment of our lives,” and came up with the iPoop as a joke.

However, he sees the possible benefits of the bathroom tech stand.

He explains, “People have their device in their hands while they’re multi-tasking, to put it lightly. Instead, they can put their laptop down, do what they do, then wash their hands so their devices stay clean.”

Reis has had friends try out the iPoop and they’ve come up with many great uses for the stand.

For example, his female friends use it to hold their laptop so they can watch movies while taking a bath.
