Spring is sprung, da grass is riz, I wonder where dem boidies is? Well, actually, it’s the sweaty, 90º+ part of summer here at the moment, but after seeing these adorable papercraft birds, I couldn’t get that old poem out of my head.
If there’s one thing you can count on in the Star Wars universe, it’s that if you build a big round killer space station, it’s sure to have some kind of major weakness that can be exploited to blow it to smithereens.
If someone asked me to make an origami swan, I’d have a hard time doing it, so I can’t imagine being able to construct a complete globe of the Earth by folding paper. But those with more patience and papercrafting skills than I should check out this tutorial that was recently posted on Instructables.
Despite the fact that they’re not actually potato chips, but are some kind of smooshed up potato mush, Pringles are still pretty tasty. As you know, these crispy snacks come stacked in a cylindrical can, with Pringles’ iconic mustachioed mascot on front.
To celebrate the final season of the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, UK office supplies company Viking Direct worked with artist Andy Singleton to create this massive 43 foot-long dragon. It’s true, the night is dark and full of terrors.
There’s something about art made with rudimentary low-polygon count forms that I find very appealing. I think it’s because it harkens back to early 1990s video games like Virtua Fighter and the original Tomb Raider. If you like the style as much as I do, then check out this awesome collection of papercraft art from Oxygami.
Just because you want a life-size skeleton in your room, that doesn’t automatically make you a weirdo. Maybe you’re a medical student, maybe a bone doctor, maybe it’s Halloween, or maybe you are just a weirdo, which is fine too.
Do you love LEGO as much as I do? Here’s a fun way to add a little extra LEGO to your life, and without using a single brick. These fun papercraft models let you add some giant minifigs (is that an oxymoron?)
A while back, I told you about the awesome video game inspired 3D shadowboxes that Glitch Artwork makes. Well, since then, they’ve continued to step up their game with new and even better pieces of wall art for fans of classic video games.
It’ll be more than a year before we see the final season of Game of Thrones, so we need some things to keep us occupied in the meantime. I plan on going back and watching every single episode sometime before Season 8, but that’s only going to take up a couple of days on a binge.
The Penguin Bomb is a DIY origami sculpture that arrives as a flat package, but when you drop it on a hard surface, it turns itself into a fat little penguin. Hence the name.
This cleverly-designed toy was created by paper artist Haruki Nakamura.
Kids are super creative, wspecially when they have to be. What do you do when your mom won’t buy you a game console? If you are this kid, you build one for yourself.
Twitter user Ama-chan’s kid brother created this cardboard Nintendo Switch because their mother wouldn’t buy the real thing.
When I was a kid, I had to fold my own paper airplanes with my own two hands. You kids have it easy with your fancy paper plane folding machine guns. All you have to do is stick 200 sheets of A5 paper into the back of this weapon, and instead of firing bullets when you pull the trigger, it will unleash a barrage of up to 120 paper airplanes every minute.
Check out this elaborate LEGO Mindstorms miniature factory. It is a real working factory in miniature, where minifigs can slave away for sub-par wages as they sweat and toil. It takes about three minutes to perform just one task: making a tiny folded paper cube.
Electronics maker Rohm Semiconductor entertained attendees of this year’s CEATEC with flying origami cranes. Rohm made the cranes to promote its new microcontroller, the Lazurite Fly.
Aside from its paper body and the Lazurite Fly, the Orizuru crane has a carbon tube skeleton, 3D printed nylon motors, a radio receiver and a battery that lasts up to five minutes per charge.
