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!
