Cardboard Boombox

Cardboard boombox, Ai Weiwei selfies, Greg Packer's ban and more in our look at the web this week

“Old school meets new school” in a cardboard boombox that sports eye-catching graphic design and is lightweight but durable. Berlin-based designer Axel Pfaender funded his idea for the truly portable speaker through a successful Kickstarter last year that raised $20,000 and the “Berlin Boombox” is now available for purchase. The kit includes the cardboard (ready to be folded) and all electronic parts—and the artist assures you that no tools, glue or tech knowledge is required. For the sweet price of $80, this cardboard boombox is sure to cause a lot of spontaneous dancing in the streets.
