Many of the world's most out-side-of-the-box designers have grasped the fact that every box is an opportunity. The Water & Wisdom concept is the work of Chou Wan Yun and Li Chao Hsiang as a very resourceful charity proposal.

Basically, the Third World aid organization would ship plastic water bottles in crates that have patterns printed onto them. Open up the carton and you'll notice checkered ink on the inside. Once the cardboard case has been emptied, it can be unfolded and flattened to become a functional chessboard. Save all of the bottle caps and these become the chess pieces with which to play the game. The Water & Wisdom chess set features the icons of the various players on every lid, sufficing as a cheap and accessible logic game to encourage people of all ages.
