Toilet paper folder & dispenser prototype

Fun & Games Technology

This is a project that me and my friends built for school (UC Berkeley). Its made of lego mindstorms, scissors, and some scrap metal. With all things considered, I think it turned out alright. Not only does it fold your paper for you, it also cuts it. It would be the perfect accessory for a fancy, high-tech, Japanese bathroom! This video shows two test runs; the first run works well, while the second one could have gone a little smoother…

    This is great. I’m a folder myself, but I’d like to see them make one that caters to the needs of those who snowball their toilet paper as well.

    Good grief, how much toilet roll does it dispense each time!
    I estimate it dispensed about 16 sheets on the second run.
    You only need 3 sheets folded into a 3 ply stack to stop any break through whilst wiping.
