The Whole World Cardboard Electronic Props / by Charlene Wang

One of my favorite things about this job is uncovering whole worlds and industries I didn't know existed before.  

This afternoon it is the world of cardboard electronic props. 

That's a completely fake cardboard computer for film and tv sets or consumer displays. 

The cool thing about small industries like this, is one phone call and a chatty person, and you know everything about the industry. 

But if you want to really learn about the history and intrigue of this industry read up here (of course I read that article with much interest)

Still getting over there are people making fortunes producing fake TV's and microwaves out of cardboard. 

oh and on my quest I came across these other specialty computer props (hilarious to me, because of course in this day and age dolls need computers too!)
