How to Move Large Cardboard Boxes without Killing Yourself


Interesting. However, I think it could be a lot better if it was designed into the packaging itself, rather than as a throw-away (though recycled) add-on. What do you guys think?

    It is a good idea.
    I wish it wouldn’t rain while using it 🙂

    It’s a great idea but why not make it re-usable vs. disposable after 1 use. I understand the need for some kind of adhesive but let’s think of a way to secure it to the package with a removable mechanism. Of course then you are just designing another cart so why is cardboard better than metal? So it goes to the original question, if you are going to do this then design it into the packaging.

    Robert, I was thinking the same, re-usability. Maybe the adhesive-thing could be replaced with some other methods, like some tiny claws that’d punch hole through the outer layer of the cardboard box, or some suckers that’d attach the handle & wheels temporarily. But the re-usable components should also be light & compact, so that you might have ’em with you all the time…
    Also, putting this kind of features into existing boxes would be appreciated. flat screen TV’s for example should come with these built-in!
    Shang, yeah! The levitational mover would be pure awesomeness. I’d attach one to my skate board immediately, just for the cool factor! 🙂

    That’s a fantastic idea. But is it only for 1 use?
    What happens when you wish to unstick the box from the move-it structure?
    Interesting post!

      @Kim: I think this was a concept and never produced.
