Boombot REX Package Design Unveiled
Good afternoon Kickstarter!!
Exciting week coming up for us. These four REX production prototypes are en route to our studio for yet another round of meticulous tuning. These models arriving will have Siri integration so you can best believe we are going to demo the Siri feature as soon as we have it.

Anyhow, we want to tell you about our package design, so here goes....
When we started designing the package for the Boombot REX, we wanted to design something truly unique. We were inspired by the precise fit of Apple products, but we still wanted a construction that was entirely our own. We envisioned a package that had mystique while also being able to merchandise the product adequately.
The die-line of this package is absolutely madness. It took a lot of engineering to get something that had the function and structure we were looking for. By nature, a hexagon shaped box is a bit out of the ordinary. Then, make a two-part hexagon box with a window and magnetic enclosure and you have madness. You are going to really enjoy using your Boombot REX, but not before enjoying the airtight vacuum suction of our package design. We hope you have a fantastic unboxing experience.
Happy Holidays from the Boombotix Team!
