Blox: Packing Made Easy

  • Kaveer Patel
Blox is a product designed to aid the user in creating their own custom sized packing box template, for when they send out items that have been sold online.
The problem Blox aims to solve is over-packaging. This is when an item is dispatched in an unnecessarily large box, compared to the size of the item inside. This can be seen as a waste of not only cardboard but packing material too.
The user simply adjusts Blox to the size of the product they wish to package, fold down the product (translating 3D sizes into 2D dimensions) and finally "stamp" out the template onto a flat sheet of corrugated cardboard.
Blox works by using specially designed telescopic sliders, living hinges and stamping teeth
