TAC-MAN / Magnetic Thumbtack Holder

TAC-MAN
TAC-MAN

Ordinary magnetic holders have some problems. In the case of paper clips and pins, they have no problem. However, in the case of tacks, sharp points which can be dangerous remain exposed to the user. It can make the user feel scared and get hurt. TAC-MAN is the magnetic holder for tacks. As you sweep over the tacks with the TAC-MAN, the tacks attach themselves onto the top of its mouth. With the TAC-MAN, the sharp points are turned inwards. Also, they are well-matched with the TAC-MAN's funny face. Thus, the user feel safety and fun. Plus, TAC-MAN is able to hold not only tacks but also paper clips and pins.
