Cardboard Polaroid Camera Concept: 2 Pics, 1 Shot

Cardboard Polaroid Camera Concept: 2 Pics, 1 Shot
I’m no hardware expert, but for the longest time I’ve been wondering why instant cameras are not commonplace nowadays despite Polaroid’s pioneering technology decades ago. Sure, even our phones can store tons of pics, but nothing beats sharing an actual photo.

F’Ing Epic Cardboard Cubicle Prank Proves These Guys Don’t have Enough to Do

F’Ing Epic Cardboard Cubicle Prank Proves These Guys Don’t have Enough to Do
Back when I had a real job I worked in a hospital on the night shift and we got really, really bored. We used to play pranks on each other than involved being dusted with baby powder if you fell asleep or shocked with a muscle stimulator.

Mac-in-the-Box

Mac-in-the-Box
The guys at 1 Block Off the Grid needed a high-end Mac to run Adobe After Effects, but instead of buying an expensive Mac Pro, they decided to build their own computer. Normally that would be nothing to write home about, but the 1BOG staff really put the hack in Hackintosh.

Racer: Wipeout Goes Analog

Racer: Wipeout Goes Analog
While I always thought WipEout was about dizzying 3D computer-generated graphics, the guys working on this project have taken a decidedly low-tech approach to the game. Devised by Malte Jehmlich and Matthes Mikysec of sputnic.tv, RACER is an analog variant of video game racers, using an old arcade cabinet, an R/C car, a wireless camera and a racetrack created entirely out of cardboard.

Nintendo 3DS Sneak Preview Video

Nintendo 3DS Sneak Preview Video
So with the Nintendo DSi XL having just hit U.S. stores this week, word is floating around the web that Nintendo is already working on a brand-new handheld that will support true 3D graphics. While there are no images of the 3DS yet, what I have here is a video – no, not of the Nintendo 3DS.

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds

Origaudio Foldable Speakers: Lean and Green Lightweight Sounds
OrigAudio (as in “origami + audio”) speakers are perfect for trips to the beach, or for whenever you just want to share music without much hassle. Let’s face it, a couple of 3.15″ 1-watt speakers won’t satisfy audiophiles and they’re definitely not good enough for parties, but the fact that they’re foldable and don’t need a power source – not a single battery or USB cable needed – means that they’re perfectly portable.

Firescuba Smoke Filter: Pocket Gas Mask

Firescuba Smoke Filter: Pocket Gas Mask
It does look like the pouch for french fries used by fast food chains, but the FireScuba could be one life-saving product. While it may not be as efficient as a gas mask or smoke hood, it’s main advantage is its size and form.

Five Stars Cardboard Hotel: Boxes Not Just for Bums Anymore

Five Stars Cardboard Hotel: Boxes Not Just for Bums Anymore
From the outside, this cardboard box sure doesn’t look like a very nice place to seek shelter. But one look inside, and you’ll see that the Five-Stars Cardboard Hotel is a luxurious resort, crafted from paper.

Flexiblelove Furniture has Room for the Whole Family, Just Make Sure It Doesn’T Get Wet

Flexiblelove Furniture has Room for the Whole Family, Just Make Sure It Doesn’T Get Wet
Made by Taiwanese furniture designer Chishen Chiu, the Flexiblelove line of recycled wood and cardboard furniture stretches and bends so that you can use it to seat one person… …or a whole group. In fact the flexiblelove 8, as its name implies, can fit up to 8 people, while the flexiblelove 16 can accommodate up to 16 people!

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke

Coffin-Shaped Mousetrap Lets You Show Respect for the Animal Whose Neck You Just Broke
I’m not sure if PETA would approve of Sarah Dery’s mousetrap design. On one hand, it provides captured mice with a decent resting place, and it makes it easy for you to toss them out the window while shrieking give them a proper burial.

Papercraft NES is Unplayable Due to Lack of Cardboard Controllers

Papercraft NES is Unplayable Due to Lack of Cardboard Controllers
The folks at Cubeecraft just posted a cardboard NES console template, which you can download here, but they didn’t make templates for cardboard NES controllers. Or cardboard NES games. Or a cardboard power cord. Or a cardboard RCA jack.

Watch Some Guy Build a Gears of War Lancer

Watch Some Guy Build a Gears of War Lancer
Gears of War is notable for a lot of reasons, but the Lancer is certainly among the most memorable. Not convinced? Repeat these two words to yourself: chainsaw bayonet. Do that ten times, and then try to argue against the incredibility of the Lancer.

Eco-Chic: Pad Your Laptop With Recycled Cardboard

Eco-Chic: Pad Your Laptop With Recycled Cardboard
If you’re looking for something both unique and somewhat green to protect your laptop and you happen to have £180+ (appx. $265 USD) lying around to spend on your little heart’s desire, you might just be interested in Giles Miller’s amazing cardboard laptop case design.

Recompute Cardboard Computer is Boxy, but Good

Recompute Cardboard Computer is Boxy, but Good
The Recompute computer has a case made from corrugated cardboard, glued together with non-toxic adhesive. Amazingly, it’s more heat resistant than plastic. Can I get an Xbox 360 made from cardboard?

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc

Worst Casemod Ever: Ubuntubox Cardboard Pc
This computer has to be the biggest hunk of junk I’ve ever seen. Cobbled together from cardboard, red duct tape and embellished with a Sharpie, the UbuntuBox V1.0 certainly won’t win any awards for build quality.

Speakers Not Worth the Paper They’re Printed on

Speakers Not Worth the Paper They’re Printed on
Now I’ve seen some cheap speakers in my days, but even the chintziest ones I’ve seen were at least made out of plastic. Not these. These ones are fabricated from thick paper stock. Xenics Music Cube M speakers offer up some truly low-fidelity sound thanks to their flimsy cardboard construction.
