Miniature Papercraft Electronic Synthesizers

Cardboard seems to be making its rounds in the creative community. It wasn't long until we found ourselves with DIY computer kits and iPod boomboxes, but nothing compares to the musical project artist Dan McPharlin has conjured up in his latest batch of detailed paper miniature synthesizers that get it right, all the way down to the knobs and keys.

The details can't be missed. From the tiny monitor to the perfectly shaped wires, the craft certainly beats out any miniature tech attempt we've seen here at Unplggd (not to say that some of the work we've seen isn't half-bad). Though while everything looks tangible to the touch, you won't be hearing any 8-bit sounds here. Everything's there for the simple visual pleasure of just looking awesome, which isn't always a bad thing.

We've stumbled on a few creative cardboard projects before, but if you've got one to share, tag it "Unplggd" or adding it to our Flickr group will make your work come front and center. If you're looking for even more exposure in the cardboard arena specifically, we suggest adding them to the Cardboard Creations group as well (where we've seen entire desk ensembles built from our brown particle friends).
