An internet toilet roll browser and a net-enabled chopping board are among cutting edge designs at the Ideal Home Show.
The show, which runs at London's Earls Court exhibition centre until 6 April, is home to a variety of strange gadgets.
Brunel University design graduates came up with five of the 15 products showcased in the Future Concepts gallery.
Design graduate Andrew Cubitt has taken the humble toilet roll and turned it into a hi-tech news and information service.
A unit installed in front of a toilet on the cubicle wall provides up-to-the-minute information on products, stocks and shares and lottery results.
People can even print off the information on a standard toilet roll.
