TCDA Invention Awarded – Example 8 2007 ??? Award Age Level: Middle School Name of Invention: Walkman Tape Cutter Rewarding Concepts: Cost for this tape cutter is much cheaper than the traditional stand. The design is most convenient for students to put in pockets and carry for classes and to be used in open spaces for activities. This invention is the most creative due to its cutter design. First, the tape is inserted into the ring from the bottom and goes through the hole with the adhesive facing the cutter. Whenever the tape is pulled up, the gap becomes the leading edge of a force. Once the tape is pulled back, the cutter will glide it back to another location. The cutter only requires two hands to complete a complex task. Controlling the length of tape is also quite convenient. When the tape runs out, do not discard the cutter. It can be removed and loaded onto a new roll of tape to continue its use, in line with the concept of environmental protection.
