Unboxing is the unpacking of new products, especially high tech consumer products. The product's owner captures the process on video and later uploads it to the web. The term has been labeled a new form of "geek porn."[1][2]

Some consider the popularity of this practice is due to the ability of showing the product exactly for what it is without any adulteration advertises usually make around the product. Being able to see what you are getting can contribute to the decisional process.[3]

According to Google Trends, searches for the term "unboxing" began to surface in the final quarter of 2006.[4]
