Check out that awesome googly-eyed velociraptor! He’s a giant industrial origami project called KitRex and he was created by Lehigh University grad student Lisa Glover.

"KitRex began as a homework assignment where I was asked to research a manufacturing process and demonstrate it in a unique way. I decided to research Industrial Origami, and over the course of 50 hours I designed, cut, and built a wearable 15-ft long velociraptor out of cardboard. I took him to a costume ball, and when I tromped into the room, literally everyone stopped to stare. He was the star of the evening, and everyone wanted one. I knew I had to do something."

Lisa then started (and successfully funded) a KitRex Kickstarter project to help her mass-produce an adorable 3-foot-long KitRex (since most people don’t have the space for a 15-ft paper dino). After months of prototyping and testing with kids between 8 - 12 years old, the final KitRex was born as a bristol board model that’s easily flat-packed and shipped anywhere (But you have to add your own googly eyes). A few lucky Kickstarter contributors were rewarded with giant 15-foot KitRexes of their very own.

Lisa isn’t quite ready to ship the KitRex, but for the time being you can click here to download a free pattern that fits on a standard 8x10 sheet of paper. It’ll be like playing with a dino hatchling.

I took a fews days off this weekend from making the cutouts to work on some other stuff for class. So today, I came up with this idea with me in a zombie apocalypse. I used some resident evil zombies because the first two are some of my all time favorites. Left 4 Dead was kinda cool too, but I would like to see a more realistic zombie game- without all the distracting heads up displays and health bars and point scoring. It’s like “who gives a shit, just let me unleash some zombie cleansing justice god dammit!” i dont play games for points, i play them for the experience. anyways, enough nerd babble out of me. enjoy!
