Graphic design and basic electronics combined to turn a simple sheet of paper into a functioning speaker for educational use, by Toulouse-based product designer Coralie Gourguechon.
The speaker cone is detached from the sheet, and spreads out to form a mechanical amplification of the sound system, and the position of the cone is also an indicator of operation. When flat, the speaker is turned off, as the folding close the circuit, creating a switch system mecanically.

Kinograph is an open source project that makes film digitization affordable and scaleable. Using components available on the internet, a few 3D printed parts, and a consumer level camera, the machine digitizes 35mm, 16mm or 8mm film at high definition resolutions with sound.
Kinograph uses software to stabilize a series of captured images (Processing + OpenCV) and extract optical sound (AEO Sound).

Check out Shelters, Shacks and Shanties, a Gutenberg free e-book, originally written and illustrated in 1920 by D.C. Beard.
It has 338 pen and ink drawings, along with instructions for a wide range of shelters, from the simplest and most basic — structures built with nothing but a hatchet — to gradually more elaborate constructions using an axe. It’s addressed to “boys of all ages” and is of special interest to homesteaders or anyone else thinking about putting a simple roof overhead.
