WHAT YOUR ORIGAMI HAS BEEN MISSING

Origami is cool. You can turn ordinary paper into little cranes. If you’re really good at it, you can make really intricate pieces of art, but really, who has the time? (And we assume the path to origami mastery is paved with papercuts – ouch!) Have you seen the reports on self-folding origami technology coming out of MIT’s Tangible Media Lab and North Carolina State University? Impressive stuff. No papercuts involved.

Papertronics are paper toys with paper electronic circuits in them. The Lunar Landers come in a pack of three: Spaceboy, Alien Girl, and Tabula Rasa. Tabula Rasa is blank and can be designed by you. Turn them into cool accent lights, party lights or fun additions to your desk. When the spaceships are placed a particular way, they light up. Turn them another way, and they turn off. They come pre-cut so you can fold them all by yourself for a fun DIY electronic origami project!

Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart

We all know the classic game of Monopoly, and we all know the iconic game of Mario Kart. We figured combining two things that we like couldn’t be a terrible idea. Except for the fact that friendships have certainly been ended by both of these games on a fairly grand scale. Hopefully you and your buddies can come to an agreement that whatever happens in Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart, stays in Monopoly Gamer: Mario Kart.
