    The mandate for the project was to choose and invention and create a collector's DVD box set for it; I chose the astrolabe. An astrolabe is an elaborate inclinometer, historically used by astronomers, navigators, and astrologers. Its uses include locating and predicting the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars, determining local time given local latitude and vice-versa, surveying, triangulation, and to cast horoscopes. The concept is that the packaging not only holds the DVD and booklet but also becomes the product in that it is a functioning astrolabe.

    What's Unique?
    what makes the packaging unique is that you don't throw the packaging away once you remove it's contents. You use the packaging as a tool to learn how to use your very own astrolabe!
