Enjoying today’s high tech and modern gadgets wouldn’t be possible if not for their predecessors. Before there were iPods, there was the Walkman. Before digital cameras, there was the Polaroid. What better way to pay tribute to the forefathers of electronic gadgetry than by recreating them as art? And that’s exactly what the graphic designers from Zim and Zhou did in their project entitled, ‘Back to Basics.’

The France-based design studio took almost a year to complete the project from start to finish. The artists used carefully cut and scored pieces of colored paper to build replicas of iconic devices that paved the way for modern electronics. Featured in the paper craft collection is the Nintendo controller, cellular phone, Nintendo Game Boy, 3.5 floppy disk, and more. The details of their designs can be viewed on their Behance profile. In addition to being colorfully creative, Zim and Zhou were proud to have used scrap papers for their masterpieces. More creative gadgets can be expected as it is a ongoing project.
