#890: Rollcontrol

Everybody must have had the unfortunate experience of having used the lavatory and reached for the toilet roll, only to find it one sheet away from finished (when you need >>1).

Today’s invention helps to avoid the nightmare of yelling to friends or family for help.


A toilet roll holder contains a small electronic weight scale (this might require the roll to be located on a central, vertical rod in the middle of the scales platform).

When you sit on the toilet seat, this makes a switch and the scales check the weight of the current roll. If it is sufficiently close to the end of its life, a small alarm sounds, warning the user to locate some new roll fast, in advance of using the toilet.
