Beijing park dispenses loo roll using facial recognition

A park in Beijing has installed toilet paper dispensers with facial recognition to stop visitors from taking too much loo roll, media reports say.

 

Machines at the Temple of Heaven park scan visitors' faces before dispensing a fixed length strip of paper.

The tourist attraction is reportedly frequented by visitors who take large amounts of loo roll home.

It has reignited debate over the lack of social graces among some Chinese.

Flushed with success

Park officials have installed six machines at its public bathrooms in a half-month trial, with staff on standby to explain the technology to visitors. The park has retained its existing loo roll dispensers.

The new machines, placed at the average heights for men and women, dispense strips of toilet paper measuring about 60 to 70cm (24 to 27.5 inches) to each person.

They will not dispense more paper to the same person until after nine minutes have passed.

"If we encounter guests who have diarrhoea 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.

Chinese taking home toilet paper from public bathrooms shows a rather under-developed social behavior.

In any case, this dispenser with facial reconition might be programmed to recognize the face of someone who might be in real need for more paper.

By the way, in some European countries in last century there used to be a worker who cleaned up the site, charged admision to public toilets and delivered an amount of paper for the users. Low tech but worked!

If you had 1.5 billion people, it would need some exceptional unconventional method. Your countries don't have the experience governing so many people.

Disney World's Magic Kingdom has about 60.000 daily visitors and they don't need to ration toilet paper in their installlations; by the way it's impressive the excellent sanitary condition of toilet rooms they keep in all theme parks in US!
