No, this prototype toilet paper dispenser isn't for you lazy lumps out there, but rather serves to aid disabled folks who sometimes have trouble using those frustrating plastic boxes in public restrooms or even the simple rolls in their own homes. Called the 'TPer' -- we think -- this model operates much like a LEGO-built one we saw awhile back, spinning up an appropriate amount of neatly folded paper before slicing it free to go about its duties. There doesn't seem to be any more info on this one apart from what you see in the vid located after the break, so if you know someone who could use such a device, it looks like you'll have to break out your trusty NXT kit.
