Why borg.com? To summarize the statement of editor C.J. Bunce, “. . . borg is the short form of cyborg, itself a shortened combination of the term “cybernetic organism.” At its core a cybernetic organism is the juxtaposition between the present and the future—the evolved organic meets future technology, usually technology meant to enhance, improve or replace a biological function. . . The seemingly unlimited boundaries and implications of these technologies have been pursued throughout popular fiction for years. . . I hope here, too, to pull together all science fiction, fantasy, entertainment–all pop culture–in one place.”

Not only do you end up with an amazing and unique piece of home decor when you assemble a Cardboard Safari product, you also end up with cardboard scraps for further crafting. For example, the disks that you punch out when assembling the Astro Rocket can be turned into a planet mobile.
Punch out the disks and color with your favorite medium. Crayons, pencils, markers, and paints all work great.
If you dare, pull out the glitter and add some bling!
We decided to use dress pins to secure the thread. We tied the thread on, pushed the pin in, and that was that. We needed to clip just one of the pins with wire cutters as it came out the opposite end of the tiniest disk.
Remember, cardboard AND pins are sharp, so small children should work on this with adults. Or in our case, big sisters.
We attached our planets to an embroidery hoop. But you can use a number of materials: Wire, sticks, bamboo skewers. . . We tied yarn to four sides and knotted a loop at the top for hanging. Ribbon would also work well. And then we attached the planets.
It was a fun family project and a fanciful addition to our home.
Galactic accuracy is not necessary!
Have rocket, will travel!
Look for the Rhino!
Introducing our newest Cardboard Creation: The Sub Atomic Ray Gun, Model XJ19-58
Rhino Protector . Light Projector . Poacher Paralyzer . Fantasy Phaser
Created by Cardboard Safari designer, Nate Main.
Look for (and protect) the Rhino!
Nate Main‘s sketch book saga continues.
The space snatchers are after the rhinos, but the poacher paralyzer is mighty. . .
Designer Nate Main continues to spin a great tale with his sketch pad.
The safari guards seem to be protecting the rhinos from the space snatchers.
With poacher paralyzers in hand the safari guards will save the day!
Another cool sketch by designer Nate Main.
It looks like some Rhino protectors have arrived.
From our hands to yours. . .

Designer Nate Main is still traipsing through space on his sketch pad.
What is his mission?
It looks like some astronauts have come to his (and the Rhino’s) aid. . .
Designer Nate Main seems to have outer space on the brain. He’s been making some mysterious and intriguing sketches. Where is he going with all this???
What might the man who brought us Merlin the Unicorn, the Reliéve Lansdscape Scenes, the Cardboard Rocket Table, and Vince the Human Skull be up to?
Where are these robots and what are they doing there?
