Tape is one of those really useful things that has always had a bit of a fateful flaw. Since it sticks to itself, it can be incredibly frustrating to find the end of it once you start using a roll. A team of industrial designers came up with a simple, yet smart solution to finding the end of the tape.

The so-called “Easy to Find End Tape” was designed by Jaehyung Kim, Deockeun An, and Cheolwoong Seo. Its design features a unique bumpy shape which means that the end of the tape is always easy to grab on to no matter where you leave off.

It turns out this design first surfaced all the way back in 2011, and has yet to go into production. Maybe someday 3M or someone else in the tape business will take it upon themselves to make tape rolls like this.
