Papier Machine developed a book with six interactive paper toys that incorporate electronics

Paper and electronics seem like opposites, but they come together in Papier Machine, a project from a trio of designers. Their latest product is a series of paper activities including electric components that are ready to be popped out and constructed. These include a graphite piano, a gyroscopic race and a wind sensor designed to look like a ghost. PSFK covered Papier Machine in 2017 when initial versions of the activities were teased, but now the designers have finished their book and arecurrently seeking funding.

The group launched a Kickstarter campaign, which has earned over $68,000 of its $55,000 goal. For €45, or approximately $55, you can own a book of your own with all six activities, though packs of multiple books are available as rewards. The rewards are expected to be shipped once the campaign is over in February.
