The Swing Toothpaste may look like a playful tweak at first, perhaps one geared towards children, but it actually serves a much greater purpose then simply having a little fun in the morning. Through the application of centrifugal force, the Swing Toothpaste pushes the contents towards the front. This is achieved by twirling the tube in one direction and one direction only.
Designed by Sungmin Hong, Yubin Choi, Yun Kim, Mi Jang and Seokgyu Hwang of Dankook University, the Swing Toothpaste solves a pesky everyday problem. Squeezing the tube never seems to get out all of the toothpaste. Short of cutting it in half, a lot of the toothpaste often goes to waste. The Swing Toothpaste hopes to change that. All a person needs to do is stick their finger in the hole.
