Why Are There So Many Toilet Robots?

While we love Lego creations and all, we think that things may be getting a little out of hand here. Youtube is littered with videos depicting robots like this one, helping people do the basic things they've been doing in bathrooms for hundreds of years. Sure this toilet paper dispensing robot may look cool while it dispenses two-ply rolls to a catchy 8-bit soundtrack, but are you really so lazy as to be unable to reach over and grab the roll yourself? Have we become so dependent on technology that we cannot even relieve ourselves without the aid of some mechanical menace?

I don't know about you, but I'm planning on keeping my Lego sets as far away from the lavatory as humanly possible. Because when that eventual robot uprising does come about, I definitely don't want to be caught with my pants down.
