"PET bottle cutter" is a tool for "reusing" PET bottles. You can "peel" a PET bottle and process it into a thin rope, just like peeling an apple.
To use it, cut the bottom of the PET bottle with a cutter, etc., sandwich it between "PET bottle cutters", and rotate it half a turn. The end of the rope will come out, so grab it and pull it. Then, when the PET bottle turns around, it starts to rotate, and it is cut and processed into a rope.
The rope made in this way seems to be surprisingly strong even if it is thin. If you bundle a few, you can use it to tow a car.
It seems to be perfect for use as a material for handicrafts.
The thickness of the rope can be set freely. The biggest feature is that it can be reused without using energy.
It was developed by Pavel & Ian, based in Versailles, France. The company is conducting a campaign to recruit investors on the crowdfunding site kickstarter with the aim of commercializing "PET bottle cutters". We were aiming to raise € 8,500, but have already raised more than € 190,000. A 20 euro investment is required to obtain a "PET bottle cutter". A separate shipping fee to Japan is required. Shipment is scheduled for June 2016.
