You can still pledge if you want to receive one of the first Foldables and get them at the pre-launch price.
Foldable.Me seems to have struck a paper nerve.
Wired Gadget Lab says:
Papercraft, that’s the future of creating tiny effigies - especially ones of yourself.

Ever wish you could just post yourself somewhere and visit friends far away? Well Mint Digital has a solution for you. Foldable.Me is their latest and possibly one of their cutest endeavours.
We are delighted to be launching Ladyblabla, a mobile phone comparison site with a mission to fight mother-to-baby HIV transmission in southern Africa. (UK only, for now.)
Across Southern Africa, where healthcare provision is patchy, mother-to-baby HIV transmission is common. It's largely preventable, but prevention involves doing lots of little things right. It's hard to stay on track.
A charity called mothers2mothers is having great success with a new approach. They train mentor mothers - local HIV-positive mums - to be a layer of front-line support for new mothers.
Mint is heading down to Dorset for our annual product development competition and knees-up formerly known as the WebApp Weekender.
As one old timer famously remarked 'It's better than Christmas'.
The WebApp Weekender is no longer particularly about web apps and isn't over a weekend, so we are renaming it WAW. Like BP, CBS and AT&T, it stands for nothing but itself. It's an orphaned initialism.
The brief this year is to launch a business in 4 days. The business has to 'scratch a person's creative itch in a low cost way and touch the physical world'. What that means, I guess we'll discover by Friday.
The winner will be the team who generates most revenue in six weeks after the weekender. If you are interested, here's the full brief.
We'll be back in a week...
Angie, Colin and I went to MIDEM last week. It's probably the biggest Music Industry focused conference in the world. This year there was a greater focus on tech than in previous years, so we thought we'd go along and see what was up. Below I've highlighted 3 themes that ran through the conference, from the point of view of a digital agency guy.
