Only the Japanese could come up with something so ridiculously useless and hilarious yet completely ingenious as well, then name it the ‘White Goat,’ which doesn’t describe its function at all.

Conceived last year, the White Goat is now being put into production. So, what does it do? Well, it converts regular paper into toilet paper! 40 sheets equals one roll. Yet the darn thing costs $100,000. According to, you would have to crank out 200,000 rolls from the White Goat before breaking even!
