Israeli inventor Izhar Gafni built this bike entirely from recycled cardboard using a process that he likens to folding origami. By using this process the bike can hold up to 485 pounds and a layer atop protects the cardboard from the elements.
Gafni is currently working with investors to have his bikes ready for worldwide distribution as early as next year and it will cost between $9 - $12 to produce.
