Henry Wang and Chris Curro, students at the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, have created a more efficient and resourceful cardboard box.
Wang and Curro set out to create a better box and started by identifying the main issues with traditional cardboard boxes:
- They use too much material.
- They are hard to open.
- They are hard to pack.
Eventually, Wang and Curro came up with the Rapid Packaging Container, which improves upon the three major problems of a regular cardboard box:
- 15% to 20% less cardboard
- Unfolds through pushing a tab on top of the box
- Fully reversible making it easy to send and resend things
A full summary of the Rapid Packaging Container is in the video below:
