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.
