The RSStroom Reader, Feeds On Your Toilet Paper


By David Ponce

I haven’t been this excited about any product in quite some time. Combining your RSS addiction with your daily trip to the can has never been easier, with the RSStroom Reader, from Yi Tien Electronics. It’s this crazy machine that hooks up to your computer wirelessly, and prints random RSS posts right to your toilet paper, for you to read before you, eh, use it.

The best part of it is, it integrates “biometrically” with your toilet bowl. When you sit, it’ll weigh you, and according to the result, deliver your customized feed. So, it’ll be tabloids for 95lbs Sandy and OhGizmo news for 195lbs George. And then, of course, the rest goes back to nature.

The thing looks like it might be a Taiwan only offering, but who knows how long it’ll take to make its way here.

Update: Oh, yeah… did I forget to mention this is most likely a hoax? How sad. Or is it? I would have bought such a machine.

  1. […] La verdad no me crean mucho con respecto a este artilugio, y es que a mi me parece un “fake”. Via ohgizmo leo acerca de este gadget que además de parecerme un fake, me parece una de las cosas mas estupidas que he visto en mi vida, su nombre: “RSStroom reader by Yi Tien Electronics”, con este artilugio podrás imprimir tus RSS directamente en un rollo de papel higienico. Viene con soporte Wi-Fi , USB 2.0 y RSS 2.0/Atom. Pero no termina aqui resulta que este “lector” interactua biometricamente con la taza del inodoro pesando a quien esté sentado, dependiendo del peso entonces los feeds son personalizados. Segun ohgizmo lo venden en Taiwan. […]

    many women (caucasian, and particularly asian) don’t actually sit on the toilet in public facilities, they simply squat so the don’t expose themselves to germs… so how do squatters get some TP?

    is this a hoax?i was seriously thinking about this for my dads christmas.

  14. […] I think we all deserve an apology for whoever thought that this was a reasonable idea. Look, I like the web as much as the next guy, but I do not feel the need to physically wipe my ass with news from the internet. Actually, come to think of it, maybe this guy doesn’t like the web at all. Maybe it’s some grand statement about how, in this information-saturated society, we might as well use the millions of pages of junk floating around out there to wipe our asses, because none of it can be trusted anyway. Sadly, I suspect there’s no such cleverness behind this. I hate this thing even more because it’s kown as the “RSStroom”. Jesus, even people like me know that those sort of puns are best left in your own home, behind closed doors. Also, the article is written by someone named “ponce”, which must be one of those name’s that’s tough to have. […]

  21. […] The second (and coolest) item is the “rsstroom reader“. This amazing device biometrically decides who is sitting on the pot, then prints out personalized rss feed content straight onto your toilette paper for easy reading, cleaning, and disposal. (The biometrics it uses would probably be user weight and not my prefferred method of assprints). What better time is there to catch up on the latest dohblog? This might not be real(I haven’t yet found a link to actually buy this amazing machine), but I would seriously consider getting one. […]

    Who reads their toilet paper? THINK PEOPLE! THINK. Why not have it print pictures of your choice, ex-girl friends, your boss, co-workers, in-laws, G.W.Bush and staff…….Now that is something people would use. You know you would feel better seeing your boss in the morning, remembering the last time you saw him he had doo-doo on his face.
