Toilet paper dispenser prints your Twitter feeds

In case you don't want to bring your smartphone or tablet along when nature calls, consider a giant TP machine that delivers tweets on the spot.

This is probably the weirdest device we've seen so far--and for good reason. Check out this dispenser that prints your Twitter/RSS feeds on toilet paper. It's made by one Mario Lukas from Germany (we're guessing the designer didn't want to risk bringing his smartphone or tablet along when nature calls).

The printer was made mostly from wood, as well as bits and pieces salvaged from old CD drives. As is the case with many things DIY-ed these days, an Arduino controller works the bathroom contraption.

Watch this video to see how the device was constructed.

We're guessing those bathroom breaks will now last twice as long.
