Electric Toilet PaperWe have seen automatic sinks as well as no-touch soap and hand towel dispensers in public restrooms. But have you seen a no-touch toilet paper dispenser yet? No worry, it is time for that too now. This new toilet tissue dispenser will probably let us use 20 percent less toilet paper. It is trying to snatch away the $1 billion from the home toilet paper market. Kimberly Clark Professional has created an electronic toilet paper dispenser designed for public restrooms that dispenses only five sheets at a time. Their study found that on average Americans typically use twice as much toilet paper as Europeans — as much as an arm’s length each pull. The company decided the best length is about 20 inches — or precisely five standard toilet paper squares, though the machine can also be adjusted to churn out 16 inches or 24 inches, depending on the demand.

To make the dispenser more secure, the machine isn’t completely automated. Each comes with a suite of “security” features in case the machine malfunctions.There’s an emergency feed button, and a manual feed roller that lets the users pull the roll around if the motor breaks down or the four D-size batteries run out. There’s also an option for a “rescue roll” on one side of the machine just in case the old-fashioned way is preferred. The device also has LED indicator lights to let the janitorial staff know when the paper or the batteries are running low. The automated-no-touch-toilet-paper-dispenser cost about $30 apiece for the plastic variety, and $55 if cased in stainless steel.
