These are some explorations with flexible electronics in paper craft using ATtiny micro-controllers with various sensors and actuators. This animates the paper into platform for play and interaction.
Projects shown here include a flower with LED's that turn and off with touch, a "lace" pattern with fluttering lights, a digital fireplace that sparks and crackles (sound and sight) when blowing on it, and the use of electronically activated thermochromic ink that appears magically on a surface.
