With their serrated edges, standard Scotch Tape dispensers can benefit from some small improvements. Enlisting the help of Joongho Choi, this safety tape dispenser was developed, removing the potential hazard from its exposed position.

This designer's solution was to integrate the rough blade into the body of his reusable desktop device, keeping it out of sight and out of reach. The contraption was thus given a pair of rotary components, including the roll holder and a safe slicer wheel. To obtain a piece of sticky tape, you simply turn the dial on the side of the apparatus. A single piece will be cut and supplied. This safety tape dispenser is ideal for classrooms especially, and as a tool for those who do constant and quick taping.
