Recycled Cardboard Is Fast, Fun & Cheap for Computer Geeks

The makers of fast, fun, and cheap (whoever they might be) have come up with the cardboard laptop stand.

This innovative arts and crafts endeavor takes a simple cardboard box and, in a matter of minutes, turns it into workplace chic (I wouldn't suggest bringing it to work).

TOOLS: Writing utensil, scissors and cardboard box (THAT SIMPLE).

If you're really feeling inclined, add some designs or colours to that bad boy.

Implications - Many consumers experience a sense of loss when it comes to buying a commodity as they lack contribution to the product's design. DIY artifacts are appealing to many individuals as this gives them a sense of empowerment. Companies would be wise to consider how their designs allow buyers to feel in control and valued.
