End-user Design and Fabrication of Interactive Paper Devices

Greg Saul (Carnegie Mellon University)

Mark Gross (Carnegie Mellon University)


We describe a family of interactive devices made from paper and simple electronics: Paper Robots, Paper Speakers and Paper Lamps. We describe the construction techniques we developed for these paper devices and the Paper Factory custom software that empowers a novice user to create and build their own designs.
