The inventor says:

Once the shape has been formed and cut, the cardboard is treated with a secret concoction made of organic materials to give it its waterproof and fireproof qualities. In the final stage, it is coated with lacquer paint for appearance.

Nobody could comprehend plastic bicycles not that long ago now carbon fibre is everywhere (I know carbon is not plastic but plastic holds the carbon together although I could be wrong as i'm not an engineer). Nice idea just a shame its plug ugly and Israeli though i'm sure the Palestinians would be delighted if the IDF started using them, not molotov cocktail proof :lol:
