Teaser promo for the show touts the usefulness of packaging: "It's all around us—so much a part of our lives that we forget it's there. But try to survive a single day without packaging."

 

Among the clips will be:
• How engineers at a Michigan company that designs water bottles found inspiration from a bell pepper.
• Manufacturing secrets from the makers of Bubble Wrap.
• How the U.S. Transportation Command packages and ships America's military goods and supplies.
• How NASA engineers packed a fragile humanoid robot for a trip into orbit.
• How a new easy-to-open package will cure "wrap rage."
