Cardboard Radio: A Working Radio on a Cardboard Body for Easy Recycling

Website Suck UK has for sale a radio that, with the exception of the electronic components, is made entirely out of cardboard. From the website:

Some people would say we've already missed the boat on this, and some will say it's never too late to miss a boat, in many ways it doesn't matter, since this article is nothing to do with boats... but in the midst of man-made Armageddon, it's time we all started to design, manufacture, and consume more responsibly. With this in mind we've teamed up with designer Christopher McNicholl and produced our first cardboard radio. The internals are housed in a simple card structure which can be recycled at the end of the product's life.

The radios form is simple and concise and adds to its no nonsense appeal -- which is a shame, since we can no longer roll out all the bad puns we had planned.
