I found a pattern for making a folded paper structure that expands and contracts. I attached it to a motion module and tried it out with visitors in the PIC. Most visitors thought it looked like a venus flytrap because of the way it opens and closes. I got the idea from an article an engineer wrote about how leaves unfurl as they grow.
