Graphic design artist extraordinaire Taras Lesko folds out one of the most intricate origami ever made. Okay, papercraft if you’re finicky about terms but still it’s one amazing piece of work.
This promotional project to build a 4′ by 2′ by 2′ replica of an Audi A7 took a grueling 245 hours to finish. It also used 285 piece of paper to cut out 750 model pieces. It’s painstakingly detailed down to the GPS inside.
Lesko used mostly basic implements: a laser printer, cutting plotters, glue and an X-ACTO knive for this job. The great thing is he even recorded the entire process in a compressed YouTube video for us to enjoy.
Now all it needs is a paper engine to run around, though that might not be wise since fire beats paper after all.
