Holy crap... people are actually bidding on it! The description is borderline ridiculous. Haha.

I'm more interesting in knowing why you were searching for this in first place?

Hey man. People need to feed their kids from the income of specifically sized pieces of cardboard.

To be fair, they've got pretty good resale value. You could probably flip it for around 3K in 12 months.

I see a bunch of copycat cardboard sellers. The original inventor should start filing lawsuits, using a cardboard cutout of a lawyer.

please see all the details for this fantastic product below:
No display – just your own eyes looking at a piece of cardboard. Real hd, fully colour, no lost pixels. Quite brown.
No camera - you don't have to take photos of your 'friends' or your own disappointed face when you realise this really is just a piece of cardboard.
No video recording – if you want to see something just look up from your piece of cardboard and watch it happen. Full hd, surround sound.
Wireless technology – this being a piece of cardboard, it needs absolutely no wires to function.
Design – even thinner than the popular smart phone (probably) and at the same time you are far less likely to get mugged.
Battery life – this is a piece of cardboard so doesn't include a battery. No more hopeless power saving techniques or borrowing chargers from people you don't really like.
Eco – fully biodegradable and recyclable.
Sharing capabilities – you could rip or cut up and share this with probably more than ten people. But why would you want to do that?
Unique – if your thing is being individual and different then this is the product for you. Never be embarrassed by someone using the same gadget on the tube. Guaranteed to make you feel superior and cool, this is way ahead of the times.
No more annoying phone calls – this one speaks for itself. The piece of cardboard on the other hand, can't speak. It's just cardboard.
Durability – literally just a piece of cardboard. You probably shouldn't get it wet.
This is just a piece of cardboard. If you bid on this item you are promising to pay money for a bit of rubbish. If you win you will receive a piece of cardboard in the post. Don't expect anything else. No refunds when you realise you wasted your money on a piece of cardboard.

All money raised from this auction will go towards a challenge (trekking along the great wall of china) i am undertaking for the charity dig deep which is a uk registered charity that helps communities in kenya improve access to clean water, sanitation and renewable energy.
If you would like to sponsor my trek via just giving please use the following link https://www.justgiving.com/julia-mcgill any contribution would be much appreciated!
