Poop Show

What is the deal with these toilets?!

Why is it that the more recent Viennese toilets are built like bathtubs for the physically challenged or elderly?
I.e. with a step or "landing" half way down?


The downside?
Increased visibility and smell.

It is rather off putting, you must admit.

I can't figure out what the plus side of designing toilets this way could be.
Any ideas?

At least if you drop something in them, or maybe Emma in a couple of months you do not have to "dive" in the yucky water to go fetch it!!!
