At Inhabitat we love gadgets [2], but sometimes we cringe at the environmental costs [3] of their manufacturing. So, we perked up when we heard about GGRP’s [4] brilliant album packaging that transforms into a cardboard record player. The 45 rpm album sleeve unfolds into a miniature record player, and with the help a pencil you can become a DIY zero-energy DJ [5].

We’ve been really digging things [7] made out of cardboard [8] lately and this little guy’s an ingenious addition to the list. GGRP is a 40 year old sound engineering firm [9] that does everything from record and mix records to casting and script writing. They sent the cardboard record player to creative directors across North America as a little reminder of how good they are at what they do. What a perfect way to show their chops with this really simple toy [10]. Let’s just hope that when their clients are through with it they put it in the recycling bin [11] and not the landfill [12]!
