Gear  |  Projects
RollScout's is a seek wall-mounted toilet paper holder, but it hides an infrared emitter and sensor. When the roll empties down enough, the emitter and sensor connect and the holder pulses with a round amber light to alert unsuspecting bathroom users to the dire nature of the situation.  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. RollScout's team has already built a working prototype, but it's looking to raise $37,500 to go into production. The RollScout is up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $49 will get you one of your very own.
