Papercraft heart of rotating gears

Paper engineer Haruki Nakamura created this amazing heart of gears. The video really gets cranking around :50. Gear's heart (via Drawn!)



  1. Cool papercraft, but what’s with that zombie arm that controls it? Either that person is of the undead, or they’ve got a serious Colloidal Silver problem.

  2. i heard a phrase that sounds something like “nori mash da”, and I recognized it from hearing it on the “Unbeatable Banzuke” TV show – what does that phrase mean?

  3. #12 you probably heard ‘narimashita’ – past tense of ‘naru’, ‘to become’. It’s a very common verb.

    (disclaimer, I only know a bit of japanese…)

  4. If you’re wondering what he says in detail, I posted an English translaton in teh comments.

    It also seems that he has a book coming out here in Japan in December, I don’t know if it will have how to make these in it, as he calls these his “sakuhin”- masterworks.
