Student-Invented "Rapid Packing Container" Video Goes Viral
January 02, 2014
The Rapid Packing Container, a new design for the cardboard box invented by two current students at the Albert Nerken School of Engineering, has seen a video promoting the invention go viral, with over three million views on YouTube, along with mentions on many other blogs and websites. Inventors Chris Curro and Henry Wang won the $5000 grand prize for their idea at last year's first-ever Invention Factory, a summer competition among current students to design and prototype a potentially-patentable invention over six weeks. The video was produced in an effort to find funding for further development and manufacture of the prototype. Posted to Reddit, where it has gotten over 2000 comments, the video was rapidly picked up and reposted on such sites as Digg, Core77 and even Adweek.
Videos of three additional Invention Factory projects are available online:
