Easy-Open Packing Tape Concept

As I've said before, there's still room for innovation in non-digital products - and I always like finding evidence that I'm not just making that up!  Here's a concept under consideration by product incubator Quirky: Rip Cord Packing Tape.  That purple stripe down the middle is a string that can be pulled to split the tape in half, ideally eliminating the need for a knife to open your package.  I say "ideally" because it's not quite perfect - even in the photo above you can tell that just pulling the string won't let you open the package, because the flaps are still held down by being taped to the box sides.  Oh well, it's just a concept for now - maybe there's a way to fix that problem too...
