East West - animated paper automata


Categories: , ,


East West. Turn the handle and while one character bows the other raises his hand to shake hands. Realising their mistake they switch greeting – an endless cycle of polite misunderstanding! Print this model onto thin photocopier card then all you need to make the model are scissors, ruler, PVA glue and a sharp knife.

  • how is it even possible that

    how is it even possible that this has been on the site  for like 2.5 years and have no comments,well anyways i did this model a few days ago i have the basic movement okay but one of them the hand dosnt go all the way up and the other dosnt bow as much but the movement is there on both of them so i can live with it being slightly off.the mechnism is  very clever as a single push rod and some linkages control both the movement of the arms and the bowing is a funny model as you turn the handle and watch them alternate in an infinate motion of confusion.  

  • I made the model yesterday.

    I made the model yesterday. My printer supports black and white colour only. So I printed the model on white paper. The ink didnot dried after 10 days. So I decided yesterday to make the models without ink dry. After finishing the model, my hands were totally black.

    Here we go:-

    Thanks Rob for east and west
