This interesting design was developed at the University of Dundee for the SXSW Paper Apps panel.

This interesting design uses an unexpected material to create a familiar product. ‘Paper Headphones' is a project developed by Tom Metcalfe and Michael Shorter in the Product Research Studio at the University of Dundee, Scotland. The headphones, which were printed in collaboration with Novalia, were developed especially for SXSW 2012 in support of the Paper Apps panel ‘Can Printed Electronics Save the Music Industry?'.
