A Gravity Compensation Device For Your Toilet Seat

Inventors own MakerBots. They invent useful new things and turn them into real objects. They make charming videos with clever animations and share them online. What a beautiful age we live in!

Meet Bobson Hsiao, an inventor in Taiwan who is also the proud owner of a MakerBot Cupcake CNC from Batch 9 of our earliest production in 2009! Bobson showed us his latest invention, a “gravity compensation device” for raising and lowering a toilet seat. As he notes, the printed joint piece “works so well that the toilet seat is operated using tiny motors.”

You can find Bobson on Thingiverse, too!
