Customizable recycled plastic and paper iPhone case

Computers & Mobile Craft & Design

Wandering around MacWorld today I came across this customizable recycled plastic and paper iPhone case from a company called Trexta. What makes this case particularly interesting is its intent for you to customize it as well as the manufacturing process involved in producing it. It’s made using recycled plastic and paper using a process similar to double-shot injection molded plastic. One unique characteristic of their production process is the lack of an adhesive used to bond the different surfaces together. This looks like it could be a fun project to do with kids and much more convenient to carry around that a mug.
