Please Make These: Pole-Reversing Magnetic Scissors

Illustration for article titled Please Make These: Pole-Reversing Magnetic Scissors

Okay, people who make scissors. We can do this. We can take these concept scissors, that use magnets to provide 90% of the cutting force and lock shut when you reverse their polarity, and make them a reality. Right? Please?

From designers Sang-in Lee & Yun-je Sung, these 90% Magnetic Scissors would make all that snipping I do a breeze. The magnets are located in the scissors' finger grips, using the repel motion to make an easy cut. When the polarity is reversed, they slam shut and stay that way.

Makes sense! Seems doable! So let's get out there and do it. [Yanko Design]
