Animated Paper Shark Automaton Download Kit

Animated Paper Shark Automaton Download Kit
The AquaShark Automata is an new animated paper automaton kit from the folks at CeraCera. This is a downloadable kit that will cost you about $5 U.S. dollars. The model looks to have a very nice, subtle motion. Paper automaton makers amaze me in what they can do.

CeraCera Paper Automata Blog

Though not updated in a while, the folks over a CeraCera Paper Automata Kits have also created a blog.

The blog gives a candid look at the process of designing paper automata -- both the failures and successes. There is much one can learn on this site about paper engineering, and how it applies to automata.

Check out some of the posts on CeraCera Design Notes blog. It's fascinating stuff, so hopefully, they will be adding some new posts soon.
