I’ve seen pinhole cardboard cameras before, but this is the first time that I’ve seen something like this made by a furniture giant. It was a promotional item, but it makes me think that IKEA might be working on a product like this.
Kids these days get everything that they want. In this case, this 9 month-old got himself a Millennium Falcon before he even knew he wanted one. Liam’s amazing parents spent 3 months building him his very own cardboard Millennium Falcon.
Boomboxes might have gone out of style even before I was born, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate them or their place in pop culture.

I’ve heard of cardboard being used for a variety of purposes, but this is the first radio that I’ve seen that made out of it. This radio is appropriately named the Cardboard Radio.
It was designed by Christopher McNicholl for SUCK UK.
One of my all time favorite characters in the Star Wars flicks is R2-D2. I always thought that R2 was the coolest droid in the universe because he was one of the smallest, didn’t have any real weapons to speak of, but he would throw down if he had to.
Think you’ll be seeing a lot of disposable appliances and tech in the future? Loughborough University student Jake Tyler thinks so. He designed this concept, and it was then picked up by European vacuum maker Vax.
