Paper is incredible stuff. It's easy to cut, but incredibly strong. It's disposable, but can last for centuries. It can stand as stiff as a board, pop up like a spring, or float like a leaf. And its invention changed the world forever.

Perfect for kids, parents, and educators, Paper Inventions is a project-based book with full color illustrations, step-by-step instructions, supply lists, and templates that allow you to follow along with the book or devise something entirely new. Each chapter features new projects that will challenge and intrigue everyone, from beginning to experienced Makers.

In this book, you'll learn to make:

  • A light-up paper cat that shows how switches and sensors work
  • An action origami robot worm
  • Edible rice paper perfect for secret messages
  • A space rover that moves thanks to paper machinery
  • A paper generator that creates electricity when you tap or rub it
  • Heat-activated paper models that fold themselves
  • A geodesic dome big enough to crawl into--from newspaper!

    Comments about oreilly Make: Paper Inventions:

    Another book I got in a recent sale. There are some great ideas in here, all based around one of the cheapest materials to hand. Read it, but not got around to making anything yet. Only 15 years until retirement .....
