Tack Seed

“Tack Seed “, using hollow structure with transparent and elastic material, hold a thumbtack inside. Users can’t be stabbed by tacks directly because of its elastic structure.
When needs to use, press it on papers toward the wall, the new messages will broadcast as roots sprout; when takes down, only press two sides with fingers then to pull out.
From the mature and full bean pods, people can feel a vital joy. The package of bean pod is a container, like gestated space to put many Tack Seeds, reminding us of paper messages that we broadcasted before.
