NewFoldr offers open-source designs for desktop accessories, made from corrugated cardboard.

There is always an emergence of new gadgets, smart tech options and IoT devices, but production waste can sometimes out weigh the benefits of innovative gadgets. Offering an Eco friendly solution, NewFoldr hosts open source, cleverly designed, DIY cardboard gadgets.

NewFoldr’s most recent recyclable products include a variable light LED desktop lamp, a portable Bluetooth speaker and a set of mini desktop speakers. Each product uses touch sensors and includes modular circuit boards that are charged via micro USB cables. Users can also customize the gadget’s artwork and personalize their own power switch icons.
