    Some students at Georgia Institute of Technology came up with this collapsible truck box. Looks like it would work really well but I would install one or two hinged bars swinging perpendicular to the spine of the hinge that would drop into place and add support to the sides. I'm sure someone else could come up with something better but it's a start.

    What do you guys think?

    It's a good idea if you only use the box occassionally (like packing stuff for off-roading).
