Two Students Think Outside of the Box to Reinvent the Box

By: | January 16th, 2014

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:
