This is what I found on LAIST.COM:
The opening of a self-cleaning toilet didn’t seem like it should be a big deal. Paris has had them for decades, and L.A. has 14 scattered around town. Metro has them at two transit stations. But a new version opened this month and is the first to be installed in a Los Angeles city park.
This two-stall automated restroom is an experiment to lower the cost and increase the cleanliness of the city’s aging stock of public park restrooms. It cost $182,000, L.A.’s Recreation and Parks Department spokeswoman Rose Watson said.
The parks department was so proud of their new loo that Councilman Paul Krekorian told me they held a grand opening, including a ceremonial cutting of the toilet tissue.
This structure is made by Exeloo, a New Zealand company. It has two unisex stalls behind the wood and stainless steel exterior. Signs in English, Spanish and Braille give instructions. A wave of the hand near the no-touch entry button and, whoosh, the door opens and you step inside.

City officials got together for a toilet paper “ribbon cutting” to show off the city’s first self-cleaning restroom at the North Hollywood Recreation Center.

It’s the city’s first self-cleaning, toilet-paper-rationing, “intelligent” bathroom, which was installed at the North Hollywood Recreation Center. It talks to you, it pipes in music, and the door slides back open in 10 minutes. So you better be done with your business by then. pic.twitter.com/UVb42I9siu

Excited to unveil our park system’s first self-cleaning restroom! The new, fully automated park bathroom is located at North Hollywood Recreation Center and will ensure that our @LACityParks facilities meet basic bathroom needs for our park visitors and maintain high standards. pic.twitter.com/trK0qpcDfz

Here’s one in Ohio.
Council has installed an Exeloo public toilet at St Johns Park for the thousands of users of the fields, tennis courts, outdoor exercise equipment & walking paths at the park.
The automated self-cleaning toilets are cleaner and more secure. Keep an eye out for a new loo near you! pic.twitter.com/e9cQO8ThKo
