Evaluation of judges (public comments)
It is a product that played both the strength and ease of erasing when thin. Although the strength was insufficient in the width below the line spacing in order to erase the character of one row in the past, this was solved by the original formulation. The work efficiency is greatly improved because there is a waist and it is difficult to erase only the necessary part. The design method with improved usability is worth evaluating by improving the material according to the shape while leaving a simple rectangular box.
