NYC Resistor member Shelby Arnold has a cool new project: a concertina-folded illustrated notebook complete with popups!

The Pop-Up Concertina is an accordion-folded booklet with pop-ups, covered on both sides with drawings I made using a bunch of .005 micron pens over the course of several months. (…) You can look at it page by page like a book (which never ends, it just turns over and continues in a loop), or you can spread it out and look at it all as one (double-sided) piece. Every way you look at it reveals new connections and interactions – the cut-outs and folds allow the pages and illustrations to change and connect to each other in different configurations.

Shelby is selling copies on Indiegogo. It sounds cool!

    Errm, what exactly is a 5 nanometer pen?!?
    500 micron, maybe? (0.5 mm)

      I believe in this case Micron is the brand of pen. So it is the pen which Micron calls .005, not a 5nm pen.

    the brand of pen i imagine is “micron” by Sakura. the tip is referred to as “005” and, according to their website, is .2mm :)
