For About $20, Cardboard Bicycle Could ‘Change The World,’ Inventor Says
An Israeli inventor has come up with a way to make a bicycle almost entirely out of cardboard — and so inexpensively that he thinks retailers would only need to charge about $20 for one. The inventor, Izhar Gafni, believes the bike could be a boon to the world’s most traffic-congested cities and help people in remote parts of the Third World get from place to place. He’s reached a deal to start mass production in a few months, Gafni tells Reuters. Full story at NPR.
