DesignerChengyuan Wei came up with cool and simplistic cardboard phone. When squezzed on the edges the cardboard folds into the shape of a phone. Microphone, speaker and connectors could be integrated into the cardboard. Wei writes that he got the inspiration for the simple design from taking apart a handset of a phone. I assume a course in Origami helps to come up with such a design that shines through its simplicity.
I could imagine that this design could also be used for future papermobile phones (see BBC). The design of the Origami handset makes paper phone ergonomic to use.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
