The Consumer Electronics Show is underway in Las Vegas this week, and Charmin unveiled a new TP delivery robot!
Charmin unveiled their "RollBot" which is a self-balancing robot that connects to your phone and delivers you a fresh roll if you catch yourself in situation where the last person didn't refill the roll. The robot has a version of the Charmin bear as its face as well (cute but creepy, IMO).
I'm guessing it's similar to a hotel robot that brings you towels and such...it has to be pre-loaded at some point, and then comes to you when needed. Although, if you have time/remember to refill the bot, why wouldn't you just stick a spare roll under the sink and call it a day? Am I asking too many logical questions?
Charmin also revealed "SmellSense," a sensor that can tell if a restroom will likely gag or keel you over from asphyxiation due to the activities of the previous occupant. The device also connects to your phone and can alert you before you head to the bathroom.
Charmin: the hero we all need but don't deserve.
