Designers create electronic toys out of paper
French designers Marion Pinaffo and Raphaël Pluvinage have created a kit of fourteen paper toys that can be cut, folded and assembled to make electronic toys. The prints are silkscreened with reactive, conductive and thermosensitive inks that turn the paper into switches, sensors, and photoresistors. The designers aim was “to reveal what hides behind our machines’ magic black boxes” by allowing users to learn the electronic principles embodied in the toys. Through assembling and using the toys, children and adults can develop a greater sense of how basic electronic devices work, and remove the mystery behind these devices.
