Ikea goes green with a cardboard digital camera

BBC reports Swedish furniture retailer Ikea has revealed an eco-friendly digital camera made almost entirely from cardboard.
Having snapped 40 photos, users can dispose of it along with any other recyclable materials.
The device is a part of a campaign around Ikea's PS at Home project, aimed at getting buyers to share images of their furniture on the chain's website.
Called Knappa, the camera will not be sold but rather given away to consumers in selected stores around the world.
It was created by a Swedish designer Jesper Kouthoofd, runs on two AA batteries, and connects to a computer with help of a swing-out USB connector.
