TJ, this photo is supplied to show the structure, and it definitely does not show shrinkwrap, although that can be applied. The point is that this reduces the need for it. This comes in somewhat different versions, depending on application, which you can see on the website.

Tamper proof?

Stretch wrapping provides a level of tamper-proofing that this doesn't seem to offer.  The image included with the article shows what look like two sides of the cube that are essentially open; one could remove a smaller interior carton quite easily through these openings with out needing a single tool.

Granted, some operation with a knife is only a little more effort, but it does require more effort.

Thought to the full lifecycle

This cube looks pretty cool and I love the fact that the engineering team considered the design from cradle to grave and factored in all aspects of how it would be used during its lifecycle. Very creative engineering.
