When you don’t have a square to spare…
A popular tourist attraction on Beijing has come up with an ingenious solution to toilet paper hogs — facial recognition dispensers.
The Temple of Heaven park installed tech-age machines that scan the faces of those relieving themselves before dispensing a fixed length strip of toilet paper, according to the BBC.

The idea is to prevent visitors from taking rolls of the treasured resource home with them.
If a person did not get enough squares in the initial offering to get the job done, they have to wait a full nine minutes for another portion.
There is a silver lining of sorts… as part of the experiment, the park upgraded from one-ply to two-ply.
And should a visitor face abnormal circumstances, they simply need to give a shout out.
“If we encounter guests who have [diarrhea] or any other situation in which they urgently require toilet paper, then our staff on the ground will directly provide the toilet paper,” a park spokesman told Beijing Wanbao, according to the BCC.
The park did say that since the machines were put into use, toilet paper usage has decreased by 20 percent.
