The White Goat

Check the date – no it’s not April 1st. The White Goat automatically turns used paper into toilet paper. Made by a Japanese company called Oriental, the machine is simplicity itself, you just feed in about 40 sheets of paper, wait for 30 minutes and take out a perfectly made toilet paper roll.

The machine shreds the paper, which is then dissolved in water, thinned out, dried and wound into toilet rolls. Oriental says one roll costs 10 Yen ($0.11) to make, which isn’t bad. And the White Goat can be installed right in your office, too. Oriental also claims that regular usage of the machine can save up to 60 cedar trees annually.

The White Goat stands 1.8m tall and weighs 600kg. It will go on sale in Japan this summer (it’s been in development for years). Price: $100,000.
