Well, after seeing the post about the clever $10 cardboard bike, I wondered what other cardboard creations might be out there. Turns out there are quite a few, and more surprisingly, even cardboard-constructed tech. We round up 10 of these resourceful alternatives — 5 to buy, and 5 to DIY. Are you board enough to try some? Five to Buy: • 1. Recompute PC - A fully-functioning cardboard computer! • 2. Cardboard Radio - Dieter Rams would be proud of this simple design. • 3. Eco-Amp - a cardboard iPhone speaker amplifier that folds flat. • 4. Carboard IKEA Digital Camera - reportedly the cheapest digital camera around. • 5. iPad Stand - Laser cut for a super clean result. Five to DIY: • 6. DIY Pinhole Hasselbad Camera - You have to see this to believe it. The pictures look incredible. • 7. iPhone Cradle - Use your origami skills to make this slick dock. • 8. Cardboard Laptop Stand - An even cheaper stand than this $2 IKEA stand? • 9. Cardboard Speakers - This kit comes with colored pencils so you can customize them to your liking. • 10. iPad Arcade - Unfortunately, there aren't any specific plans online, but the result sure looks fun.
