White Goat

Your office will never waste paper again with Oriental's White Goat machine, which converts normal paper into toilet paper. Simply insert about 40 sheets of paper, and in 30 minutes you’ll receive a freshly made roll of toilet paper. The machine shreds the paper, dissolves it in water, thins it out and then dries it and winds it around a roll. According to Oriental, it costs about 12 cents to churn out one roll.

White Goat goes on sale in Japan this summer and will be priced at $100,000. While the machine will definitely make your business more eco-friendly, there is one snag: Where are you going to store this nearly 6-foot-tall machine?
