Bring Jurassic Park to your bathroom with this molded resin velociraptor toilet paper holder. The 3D raptor’s claws grip onto a roll of TP while its beady yellow eyeball stares mischievously at your butt like it’s about to take a bite. They also sell a T-Rex version.
Awesome Toilet Paper
If there’s one thing humans use a lot of, it’s toilet paper. This video from Process X takes us inside Japan’s Marutomi Paper Co., a factory that cranks out millions of rolls of the stuff every month. They start with stacks of paper pulp that they wet and press into massive rolls, which they then print, wrap around cores, and slice.
Smoothly dispensing toilet paper is definitely a first-world problem. In fact, we’re not even sure it’s a problem that needs to be solved at all. But that didn’t stop LEGO maker Technic Brick from engineering a solution using a variety of gears, connectors, a motor, an ultrasonic sensor, and an Arduino controller.
Thanks to hoarding and panic buying, it’s become much harder than normal to find toilet paper these days. Household Hacker thinks the solution is to split your 2-ply rolls down the middle, giving you two single-ply rolls instead. We’re not sure you’ll actually use less, but it might be a short-term solution if you’re desperate.
