5) Digital camera from Paper Shoot PH

Although Paper Shoot is a start-up company that originated in Taiwan and only came to the Philippines earlier this year, because of its awesomeness, we just can't help but include it on the list as well. Paper Shoot is a digital camera made out of recycled paper. It has 5 megapixels, and comes with an 8 GB SD Card and 2 AAA batteries. You can also buy separate lenses (fish-eye and wide angle) if you want to be more creative with your picture-taking.
