Ever have trouble operating a roll of paper towels? Hang in there. The folks over at SkyMall have just the thing.

The write-up says it all:

No more wasted paper towels! The Towel-Matic’s sensor-activated control dispenses one sheet, two sheets, or the new half sheet with just a wave of your hand. It never unravels. Built-in optical sensor automatically identifies the perforations on the towel and stops right at the line every time.

One-handed operation guarantees perfect tearing and helps prevent the spread of germs. Designed for tabletop, wall mount or under-cabinet mount.

Requires 4 D batteries (not included).

Ah, so the batteries aren’t included. That may explain why the Towel-Matic is available for a song—-only $59.99!
