ITP_Sustainability shows you how to make a laptop case from a FedEx box and other tossed items…

“Design Challenge: Make Something Useful out of Whatever You Find.

We decided to create a laptop case that is functional and fun to carry. What we like most about this case is that it is not obvious to others that you are carrying a laptop.

We are using readily available materials from the recycling bin and the junk bins here at the ITP (Interactive Telecommunications Program) shop.

For materials we used a cardboard box, a fedEx envelope as a lining, packing bubbles for padding, and wire as fastiners. Some discarded nails, a pair of scissors, an exacto knife and a pen are the tools we used.”Link.
