Mildly Interesting [1404.12]

Tissue Animals

I saw this fascinating stop action animation on imgur, and the more I looked into it the more amazed I became.

It turns out it is a fragment of a longer youtube video made by the Japanese tissue paper company Nepia. The video features many other animals and plants, so I highly recommend watching the full clip (you can click on the link above or on the animated gif to the right).

They even produced a "making of" video showing just how much work went into it, which I also recommend.

Update 1404.21: if you prefer reading in Japanese, here are the corresponding links to the Nepia home page and "making of" page
