In March of 2012, a group of designers from Mint Digital in the United Kingdom created a crude prototype of Foldable.Me, a cardboard miniature standing 3.5 inches tall that can be customized to look like any person. Immediately realizing the need for dozens of hairdos, chins, eyes, and third eyes, they began a Kickstarter campaign in hopes of raising enough funds to hire an expert illustrator. Reaching their goal quickly, they launched their full site just six months later. Now, they welcome customers to Foldable.Me’s easy-to-navigate website, where guests create their own cardboard armies bearing the likenesses of themselves or their friends. Printed onto one piece of matte laminate cardboard using high-grade inks, each Foldable.Me can be assembled without the use of glue, scissors, advanced surgical training.
