Proving that you’re never too old to have fun with packaging materials, early admits to the Class of 2017 tricked out their acceptance-letter tubes after the Office of Admissions encouraged them to devise funny, creative, or artistic new interpretations of them.
Some went the practical route, like Grace Li, who made a mug with a lid, pencil holder, several hair ties, and some bracelets, and Tom “TJ” Burns, who crafted iPhone speakers.
Aaron Morris made a cannon (there’s a video), and Efetobore Tasker made an Arduino-powered, automatic window-shade opener (below). And there’s more. Check out the gallery of tube hacks, including those from last year’s class.
