Trying and failing to find the edge of a roll of packing tape is a regular annoyance to millions of people. Our patent pending technology and prototype demonstrate a highly sensitive method to locate the edge of a stuck tape roll. This solution which includes a sensor and visual indicator can be produced with a BOM cost of $0.50 per unit and could be directly integrated into a tape dispenser. You can see the working proof of concept device in the video linked below.
Our company has previously licensed technology that has sold millions of units and has provided contract optical engineering services to dozens of the world's leading technology firms
