From paper shreds to toilet paper

toiletpaper_machineNow this is a machine that I just had to report about. A company known as Oriental (yes, it is an Asian company) has created a machine that is very appropriate for offices called the White Goat.

Yes, I would have gave it a nicer name, but honestly, White Goat is probably the most descriptive name for a machine that can turn shredded paper into toilet paper.

I am being completely serious here. All you need to do is feed the machine 40 sheets of AR office paper, and let the machine do its work of shredding, dissolving the strips in water, thinning it out, and then drying it out and winding it into the rolls.

In just thirty minutes, your office TPS reports are a roll of TP, without the tube in the middle. There is a video after the jump if you would like to see it for yourself, and I highly recommend that you do.

It only costs eleven cents to make a roll, and regular use of this easy-to-install machine can save you up to 60 cedar trees per year.

Of course, you have to ask yourself if the price is worth it. Right now, this machine weighs 600 kg and is 1.8 meters tall. So not only does it take up a lot of space, but it costs a lot of money at $100,000.
