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.
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.
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.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
