eCommerce brands are notorious for sometimes sending small items in a very large box, so the 'Slimbox' box machine is intended to help put an end to this. Created by Belgium-based startup Fit Things, the 'Slimbox' works by entering the information pertaining to the item's size. From here, the 'Slimbox' will quickly create a customized box that is ideal for the dimensions that have been entered via a smartphone.

The 'Slimbox' box machine works by taking a flat sheet of cardboard and using a laser system to make perforations in the material . This allows the box to be easily folded by a user to quickly create customized shipping boxes that will reduce waste and even help reduce shipping costs for retailers.
