Low tech wonders.

I have to say, this is pretty cool. This comes (if I understand correctly) as flat cardboard. Then you fold it into shapes and there’s even a crank. When you turn the crank the fingers tap impatiently. Maybe it’s just silly, I just think this is fascinating. I imagine hooking up a little motor to the crank and watching it go. Also makes me wonder what else we can animate from simple cardboard. Will robots of the future come as flat cardboard, be folded into shape (maybe with little wires already in the cardboard) and hook up a couple of controllers or some such and bingo, walking talking robot (without the talking). More misc things like this found here. (there is also an animation of the fingers tapping there too)
