Cardboard Craft Gadgets: Disposable Design Statement? « Dornob Like life-size cardboard figure cut-outs used to advertise movies, these creative constructions are merely representations of other objects – but how far are they from the objects we so regularly throw away? We all realize the truth in this upon reflection, but it is still sometimes shocking to concede: we treat amazing technologies as disposable goods. Making things used to be about durability, design was made to last. Now no one expects even their suburban home to be well-built, let alone a phone or camera. I'm building a 6'4'' Hollow Core Cardboard Fish | Swaylock's Surfboard Design Forum I've been working on a 6'4'' Fish, made from router cuts in cardboard that Mike Sheldrake, the inventor of this board design creates in his garage. This board is unique in the way its designed, its core materials, and that it is being built in the Marshall Islands. Ive had the board kit for over 3 months, waiting on supplies. Now that they are here I have spent a few solid days getting it to the glassing stage. Im not the first person to built this board kit. There is a back story to my kit. I began deciding on the supplies I'd need to build this thing. Sheldrake has explained that these kits are very durable, light weight and can be experimented on. To Mr. To put a spin on the build process I will attempt deliver a build that is very transluscent with the use of glass. Here's the pics of my build up. ...and if you're doing a cardboard build, post pics here if you like....

Sony's new Action Cam rugged cameras go straight for GoPro's bread and butter GoPro is the name everyone thinks of when it comes to small rugged cameras that can be mounted virtually anywhere, but now Sony is aiming to grab a piece of that pie. The new Action Cam HDR-AS10 and Wi-Fi-equipped HDR-AS15, announced today, can shoot full 1080p HD video and 16-megapixel stills in nearly any weather condition. Both cameras weigh about three ounces and feature ultra-wide angle Carl Zeiss lenses that can capture a 170-degree field of view and have Sony's SteadyShot image stabilization system. Sony claims that the camera's Exmor R CMOS sensor offers "stunning low light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain," though we will have to see how that stacks up in real-world use. The Action Cam has five different video modes, including 60p and 120p slow-motion modes (at 720p resolution), as well as Interval Still Recording modes for time-lapse photography. A rugged cam with Wi-Fi on-board David Pierce contributed to this report.
Cardboard Tube Art Cardboard tubing, whether it be from toilet paper rolls or industrial strength tubing, is a versatile medium that many artists and designers have experimented with. Below are some amazing examples of what is possible with a cardboard tube.

Cardboard Bike Station Benedetto Bufalino made this cardboard bike station in Lyon (France) as a “social ephemeral” art installation. It looks exactly like the real ones you can find in the city of Lyon which was the first city in France to launch a bike sharing program (called Velo’V) a few years ago ! ++ Benedetto Bufalino Freefold Furniture Packaging Lights: Recycled Green Lighting by Anke Weiss Extraneous packaging and poor packaging design are a couple of TreeHugger's least favorite things, so we're always glad to see examples of better packaging and creative ways to reuse old packaging and keep it out of the landfill. Falling into the latter category is the green lighting from Amsterdam-based designer Anke Weiss; appropriately named "Packaging Lights," it takes typically disposable packaging -- cookies, juice, and soap, just to name a few -- and gives it new life as lighting. We've seen this kind of thing done before -- creative recycling is always welcome on these pages -- but we like the balance this strikes between looking like the original packaging and taking on its own identity as lighting. What packaging would you want to see reincarnated as lighting? Hit the jump for more pics.
