The Paperfolds strike back!

by Andi

Not so long ago, on this very site, we’ve reported on some figures coming from an universe far, far away, that you could print and fold in order to create cool figures. Now, the figures are about to become alive, and they also spare you the printing…

This cute blocky ‘bot’ is 9,5 inches tall and powered by a simple motor. You first have to snap together the chassis, then you must use skill, patience, rubber bands and scotch tape (all included) in order to create its cardboard body.

The build isn’t complex, its functionality is limited but it’s only intended as a fun toy and maybe as a way for parents to introduce their kids to robotics.

Though i don’t see this as an out-of-the-ordinary thing, it will surely be used as a base for various, more complex paper models. It only costs $12, everyone can afford one, just for fun or for the kids.
