Listed as one of the hottest inventions this year, according to Webmpires, Silent Velcro is a new product that everyone will want. The new concept lets you avoid those awkward moments of creating a painfully loud ripping noise the next time you go to open your velcro bag or take off your strap shoes. How is this possible?

Well, instead of working with tiny curved hooks, the teeth of the velcro all face the same way, making it easy for them to slide apart silently.

Now, never get caught in the middle of a painfully silent situation that leaves you with the uncomfortable dilemma of breaking the silence or not.  ilent velcro is due to be released to the public this summer and starts at only five cents per piece.
