#1562: Periodicubes

Today’s invention is more of a straightforward design. Since I couldn’t find any examples of this online, I thought it would be worth including.

It consists of a shelving unit with boxes arranged to mirror the layout of the Periodic Table. This might be most easily achieved as an IKEA hack.

Label each of the boxes appropriately and you can tell your kids ‘Your lunchbox is in Californium’.

Other suggestions include:
–fill with copies of journals in a periodicals library.
–lie it flat, cover with glass and you have a Periodic (Coffee) Table.
