The Aluminum Beer Can

This is pretty incredible little story about the design and manufacturing of the Aluminum Beer Can.

When we look at some everyday items, we don’t see the complexity that goes into the manufacturing of the object itself.  Especially something that we use every day and take for granted.

I can’t tell you how many beers I have drunk (honestly mom, only 2 in my life ;)) but I have never looked at the can itself and how it’s made.

Check out this vid and it refers to some others that are shown at the end of the video.
