This robot is made of paper, and is 100% awesome

When you think robots, you usually think of unfeeling amalgamations of plastic and metal that’s slowly gaining sentience and plotting to overthrow us all (at least, that’s how I look at them). Well, did you know that robots can be made from other materials too, like paper? Yes, paper, that same piece of writing material where you doodle during important staff meetings can now be used to make walking, unfeeling automatons. This particular specimen was made by YouTube user  , and uses elastic bands as a power source instead of the traditional robot fuel, electricity and hatred for humans. If you want to try your hand at building your own, you can download the plans at http://www.geocities.jp/kikousya290821/newmpm.htm. You can check out the video of the thing in action below.
