Samsung‘s Origami printer is a prototype with an exterior made from corrugated cardboard, which simplifies the manufacturing process and makes it more environmentally friendly to throw away. Assembled using an origami-based method, the 100% recycled material is cut out and folded to shape the printer before the mechanics and engine unit are fitted.

Wired reports that Samsung has also designed two other printer concepts, Clip and Mate, which are equally as innovative and eco-friendly. They were recently recognized at the 2013 International Design Excellence Awards.

Clip is a screw-free printer that quickly and easily folds up from a single piece of plastic and locks into place, while Mate comes with swappable exterior panels that enable users to personlize it based on their desired color combination. You can check out the three printer prototypes in the video below:
