Two engineering students believed that the cardboard boxes currently in use are wasteful, awful to pack and, in many instances, hard to open.
So, what did Chris Curro and Henry Wang do?
They set about building a better cardboard box.
Sounds simple right?
They even came up with a cooler name – the Rapid Packaging Container.
It uses 15 per cent less cardboard than conventional boxes. It needs not tape to secure it.
It goes to show that there is always room for improvement in even the most simple, taken-for-granted objects.
