When someone gets a cool bit of technology, many folks celebrate with an “unboxing ceremony”. I’m not really sure why they do this or how it got started. Is it the cool product or that packaging has gotten that good? Is it that industrial designers are getting involved?
In any case, here’s our little unboxing ceremony for our Statasys Printer, from sitting in the mail room to printing its first model. Enjoy:
There you have it. I must say, the number of boxes we got was a bit intimidating at first but when I showed them to one of our guys, he didn’t even want to read the directions. He said “some assembly required” is a rallying call for engineers. It has been working like a champ since.
