I have to admit that when I’ve saw this idea developed by David Graham as part of an Industrial Design Engineering project I’ve totally fall in love. This simple idea can help you get a heavy box across town without using a delivery truck, car or taxi. This idea is called Move-it and it’s a cleverly designed kit, made of self-adhesive cardboard parts that stick on your box and transform it into a lightweight trolley. And would you believe it’s entirely made of cardboard – including the wheels, axle and chassis? The Move-it is still in prototype form but the concept is very smart. It’s a kit that contains a set of wheels and two different types of handles. They can be applied in various ways, allowing the user to move any size and shape of box that is 20Kg (44lbs) or less. Apparently, a store attendant could attach the handle and wheels in less than a minute. It can be used on wet pavements and is designed to be hardy enough for a trip across town on foot or by public transport.
Every component of the kit is made of cardboard – so once you’ve got your package home all the kit’s pieces can be removed and recycled or reused on another box. Even the glue is harmless – it’s made of a special repulpable contact adhesive which will easily disperse in water. Now to see how all these pieces come together check the video attached below, and tell us if you think that this idea should be implemented at a larger scale. – Via – James Dayson Award
