Nothing sucks more than looking up to realize that you’ve only got a few squares of TP left after doing a massive number 2. The RollScout aims to save the day, though, by alerting people in the household when the toilet paper levels are in a dangerously low level. If you missed the alert on your smartphone, then the RollScout’s blinking LED light will remind you of that fact so you can replace the old roll before doing your thing.
The RollScout can run on a single A23 battery for an entire year, so maintaining it shouldn’t be a pain at all. Aside from home use, it’s ideal for businesses who don’t want to turn patrons off for the lack of fresh TP.
The RollScout is up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $49 will get you one of your very own.
