This robot will save you when you run out of toilet paper

We’ve all been there. No toilet paper to be found. Admit it. You’ve lived it. So what is a guy or gal to do? I don’t want to know your personal stories and solutions, but alas, technology has come through in the clutch again. Introducing the robot that will save you from this helpless feeling… it’s name is Rollbot.

Rollbot is a a self-balancing robot that connects to your phone and will deliver a fresh toilet roll directly to your seat if you happen to find yourself caught in a bind. What better place to roll out  such an invention than the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Thanks to Charmin, the popular toilet paper producer, for delivering this solution to the world. It’s unknown how or where said robot will be able to find and deliver the toilet paper. But baby steps for now, there is somewhat of a solution for when the nature calls and you’re short handed.

And if the Rollbot wasn’t enough bathroom magic for you, Charmin also delivered on two other products. SmellSense will actually let you know if it’s safe to enter the bathroom  with a “no” or a “good to go” based on how much carbon dioxide or hydrogen sulfide it detects in the air.

And there’s also V.I.Pee is a super ‘port-a-potty’ with a built-in virtual reality headset. So if you have to hit the john while the show is going on, you won’t miss a set while you conduct business.

It’s a great time to be alive, right? See you Wednesday.
