    To be fair, this is a small

    To be fair, this is a small fraction of what you've produced this last year! There are quite a few I have saved, and just haven't gotten around to making yet. 

    I'm surprised they've (mostly) survived the love and attention from my kids.

    I also had a lot of fun working through the models in the Karakuri book, by Keisuke Saka. Four really cute models (robot, peek-a-boo bear, train, penguin), plus 10 mechanism models. I've got the mechanism models on my desk at work, and it's fun to watch coworkers come in and play with them.

    Way to Go, drinkumbrella!!

    Way to Go, drinkumbrella!! You are way way ahead of me. I've been glad to know these great models are there to enjoy making, but haven't even downloaded them yet! I keep thinking I'll do it in some kind of paper automata day off frenzy. Haven't had one yet.

    Hats off to you!

    I brought my agreeable sheep,

    I brought my agreeable sheep, ruminating cow, interchangeable cam, and butterfly into my class today.  Everyone came to my desk and petted my sheep, or cow; then begged me to make one for them.  So Rob, if you notice an uptick in aggreeable sheep downloads, or in hits from ip addresses in the NY/NJ area, my fourth graders may be stalking you.

    With all of them sitting on my desk, my "platoon of paper power" combined for some moral support of geometric proportions.  In fact, I'm thinking that you should market a "Wizard of Rob" Workplace Collection: The Sheep, for those who fear Rejection; The Cow, for those afraid to Opine; The Interchangeable Gears, for those who don't Transition well; and, perhaps a Contrarian Lemming Salmon, who, just to be different, jumps downstream. This guy would be great for those whose rebellions always seem fraught with conformity.

      Fantastic ideas, najmanjay!

      Fantastic ideas, najmanjay! Truly sensational! YES! Way to spark a love for the field of paper engineering in young people too. Something about Rob's work captures the imagination so completely!
