TOOLS & TOYS: Roll Ranger and VOITED Cloudtouch camping blanket

VOITED Cloudtouch Camping Blanket

Roll Ranger

What's to love: No more squinting and turning the roll of tape trying to find the end and then trying to lift it up off of the roll. The Roll Ranger saves time and frustration.

What does it do: Ideally, when one is done using a tape dispenser the end is placed back on the dispenser or the end is folded over so it is easy to find and lift. When living in a household with other people, this may not always happen. One solution is Roll Ranger. Designed by physicists, the device finds the edge of the tape and activates an LED indicator light. The attached scraper lifts the tape evenly. The device sells for $12.99.
