His Origami Birds Were Impressive… But Then He Added 40 Magnets And Some Electricity.
Elaborate origami cranes are just about the coolest thing you can do with paper. The only thing better? Making those origami cranes bust a move to a sick beat.
Ugoita T. created these dancing paper cranes by creating a meticulously designed controller that works in conjunction with over 40 moving magnets.
So how does it work, exactly? Under the surface of the table, the series of electromagnetically controlled magnets move in time to the music, joined by bolts and powered by a small motor. The motor receives signals from a controller, which tells the magnets which direction to move.
The final result? A synchronized dance routine so epic that all the paper cranes at the club will be talking about it for weeks.
