Drawing inspiration from Chinese food boxes, Jason Lucash and Mike Szymczak created speakers that are made from recycled materials and fold flat. Since Lucash and Szymczak founded OrigAudio in Costa Mesa, California, their 3-inch-tall Fold N'Play speakers have appeared on Time magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of the Year list and the reality show Shark Tank. OrigAudio now sells a variety of electronic gadgets.
