I’ve seen my share of sci-fi movies and I know how giant robots can be pretty imposing. But these robots made from cut cardboard look like they couldn’t really do any damage – even the deadly, but tragically-flawed ED-209 from Robocop.
We’ve seen several different Star Wars inspired paper snowflakes surface over the years. Some of them were laser cut and others were apparently done freehand. That meant unless you had a fancy laser cutting set up or were crafty in your own right, you probably weren’t going to make these cool snowflakes yourself.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen the Berlin Boombox. The device turned up on Kickstarter about a year ago when it was seeking funding for production. We lost track of the device after the Kickstarter campaign and it has now turned up again, and this time you can buy it outright.
Fans of the Mass Effect franchise of games will love this life-sized version of Jack. The details are every bit as impressive as the character on screen. It’s even more impressive when you consider that she is 3D and made primarily of paper.
Several years ago we saw Alvin Aronson’s minimalist timepiece, which used wood and ceramic to replicate the seven segment digits commonly used in LCD and LED displays.
Instructables member alstroemeria took the idea further, creating a papercraft version of Aronson’s clock.
Large-scale sculptures are usually made out durable materials, but these are actually intricately cut from single sheets of paper by the artist Nahoko Kojima.
Through her works, Kojima explores the themes of human existence, animals, and the overall forces of nature.
Captains log: “I’m currently in sick bay with another nasty paper cut. Bones says I’ll live, but… I… have… my… doubts…” If you’re a Star Trek fan who’s into papercraft, you will definitely want the new DIY Paper USS Enterprise 1701 over at ThinkGeek.
What do you do with all of those boxes left over from your countless Amazon orders and other cardboard lying around your house? Don’t just throw them into the recycling bin. Do like this guy did, and build a giant badass robot.
You can already own 3D replicas of your Minecraft avatar thanks to 3D printing. But if you want a cheaper and faster way, you can use Minecraft Papercraft Studio – an iOS app made by UK developer 57Digital – and the cutting edge technology known as “folding” to turn flat paper into blocky models.
Portal gun replicas are usually quite expensive. But with a bit of cardboard and creativity, you too can make a neat gun and get the science done. And that’s no lie. Just look at what deviantART member svanced was able to achieve:
If you like to look at guns more than you like to fire them, check out these amazingly detailed paper guns, made by cardboard artist Asif Farooq. Forget about the whole gun/anti-gun controversy for a moment and just admire these harmless weapons for all of their amazing detail.
