Fold n Play

Fold-n-Play

Collapsible speakers? Made of cardboard? Learn about the product Time Magazine called one of the top 50 inventions of the year.

What they do:
Make cube speakers that fold flat.

Inspiration:
Mike Syzmczak and Jason Lucash loved their music. But these guys got real tired of sticking ear buds in their heads. They wanted speakers that were light and packable. Brainstorming together they came up with origami – the ancient art of Japanese paper folding. They created a set of cube speakers that folded flat and were made from recycled pizza boxes and other materials.

About the business:
The guys ponied up $30,000 between them and began selling Fold N’ Plays at their website OrigAudio.com. That same year, they were listed in Time magazine as one of the Top 50 inventions of the year. In less than 6 months, they sold 44,000 units.
