    Another of Haruki Nakamura’s papercraft designs is that of a white cube. Here is a Youtube video showing the cube breaking up and then reforming as the gears turn around.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    #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…)
