Towel-Matic — World's first auto-sensor perforated paper towel dispenser
Now this is more like it.
Not only did Michael Shek tip me to this product, he even wrote my headline.
More of that, please.
Wrote Mr. Shek: "You can check out this new auto-sensor perforated paper towel holder at www.itouchless.com. It guarantees towels never unraveling, and it never touches unused towels. Sensor eye identifies perforations on the towel and stops right at the line for perfect tearing."
From the website:
World's First and Only Automatic Perforated Paper Towel Dispenser
Designed for Countertop, Wall or Under Cabinet Mount
The world's first and only automatic sensor perforated paper towel dispenser works on all home paper towel brands, standard full and new half-size sheets.
Sensor-activated control guarantees one hand operation without touching the unused sheets or the dispenser and the towels never unravel.
It prevents contamination by germs and saves paper.
This smart Towel-Matic™ can dispense one sheet, two sheets, or the new half-size sheet on demand with just the approach of your hand.
How it works:
Towel-Matic™ has a built-in optical scanner that automatically identifies the perforations on the towel and stops right at the perforated line every time, making tearing towel sheets easy and mess-free.

so you know it has to be good.
Like the guy narrating the video up top says, "Prevents contaminations [sic]."
That's good enough for me.

This is stupid. Does not save time or really prevent contamination. Although it MAY save paper, the greenhouse gases used in making this shit would be far more hazardous to the environment than wasting a few sheets of paper towels, n0ot to mention the batteries. Once again, modern electronics just making things more complicated
