A Hungarian designer completely rethought egg packing with Egg Box, a simple, modern carton. Only problem is, we can't decide if it's terrible or perfection.
The single stackable piece of microwaved cardboard has ellipse cut-outs where the eggs go, and it supposedly protects the fragile orbs while letting you inspect them for cracks without having to open a bunch of styrofoam crates. It's pretty lovely, too. But Gizmodo staff was skeptical of its effectiveness. Here's the reaction from our chat room:
