Design Conjecture: Expandable Grocery Protection



When it comes to the safety of groceries in your trunk, it can be difficult to prevent groceries from shifting within the trunk without being damaged. My solution for this is expandable grocery protection. The idea is especially like bubble wrap and airbags combined. Within the trunk of a vehicle, there would be these bubbles that line the trunk that, when the trunk lid is closed, the bubbles would expand till they hold in the groceries. The hope is that expanding the trunk can have a customized fit for a variety of load sizes.


  • Positive – I believe that the bubbles expanding to adjust to the groceries inside of a trunk can prevent groceries from shifting and being damaged.
  • Negative – The size of the bubbles may be difficult to create, and they may not match the car interior of the car look when deflated.
