“Let’s think outside the box,” said the inventor of the Cardboard Bike to himself, and so he spent several years folding bits of cardboard until he came up with today’s Prototype No. 8 in 2014. Since then the company Cardboard Technologies has also built children’s bicycles and wheelchairs from recycled cardboard. They are sold at a fraction of the price they would cost under conventional manufacturing methods. Moreover, they are environment-friendly. © Cardboard Technologies
