Spread stack / storage product

Spread stack
Spread stack

Spread Stack is a radical approach to storing/ locating any stored element out of a group. The most compact way of storing CDs/ DVDs is in a flip notebook in pockets and for locating a particular CD/DVD, one has to flip across page by page in a time consuming manner. The spread stack allows for compact storage space, yet allowing for an expansion through its bellow structure to spread the contents to make them all visible at the same time, thus enabling a quick identification of location of the desired CD/DVD for accessing it. This approach can be applied to store similar entities in a compact manner for quick inspection of the contents.
