Bubble wrap is a flexible transparent material generally used for packing fragile items. It is made by melting down beads of polythene and then turned into the plastic sheets with pockets of air (air bubbles) in between. It was originally created for the purpose of wallpaper, but the inventor observed that it also had the potential of being used as a protective packaging material.  It protects the item wrapped inside from being damaged. People have found various other clever ways to use this material aside from the packaging of delicate items.
