The Dream Ball project is an example of how good design can go a long way to help people in need. Aid boxes are delivered everyday to third world countries. So Unplug designed a pattern that could be adapted to different shaped aid boxes so once the box is empty of supplies it could be made into a football! A game of football in these areas is often a way for kids to escape their reality of poverty, war and famine. They make their own balls from palm leaves, rope or plastic bags filled with dirt, so Unplugs design certainly makes for a more comfortable kick, especially when bare feet are involved!

I don't know if this can rightly be called packaging but I'm not sure what else one might call it:

Just ran across this photo in the Slate/Magnum series. Perhaps not the coolest packaging in the sense of the thread, but apropos in its way:

For really cool packaging, I suggest the Banana Skin. It's descriptive of the contents, protects the fruit, and is completely biodegradable. Can even be composted.
