What could not be done in cardboard?
Tuesday, November 20, 2012, 2 comments
Cardboard is an interesting and useful material, but this must be something special: a strong, tough and light bicycle in cardboard! In this 6 m video, the Israeli engineer Izhar Gafni shows and tells how and why he chosed to build a bike in cardboard – with material strength demos and nice clips of biking around. ”When we are told it's impossible, we knew it's the right way to be done”.
The commenter who a year ago or so insisted that this site should paddling and nothing more, may find some concolation in the fact that Izhar Gafni shows a cardboard canoe as main inspiration source for his bike project.
