Paper Cut

Möwe – Dream Paper Concept looks at the possibility of having intelligent paper that prints, auto cuts and folds 3-D paper projects. A lot of folks indulge in 3-D scale models and it is an interesting hobby. Mac takes the idea a step further by suggesting that what if we could control “where and how far to fold and also when to fold via Bluetooth or WiFi, it means you could move paper as you like without touching it. (It’s like embedding Javascript in paper!)” Building models from Google 3D Warehouse would be child’s play even for the non-devout! Awesome!

    A 3-D printer that prints in 2-D?

    BY JOVE HE’S GOT IT!

    There are numerous machines that do this now, except you have to fold the paper yourself. Take a look at the Cameo by Silhouette America and the Gazelle by BossKut. They have laser registration too.

    I bet by the time we will have self-folding paper (via nanotechnologies) we won’t need a printer. We just could send a diagram for the paper to restructure itself from our smartphone if not just by visualizing.

    Also, author, congrats, you’ve made a concept for a cutting plotter!
