Origamiwolf crafted this huggable chip using measurements from the OP07 datasheet

The various traced out parts are then scaled to the desired size, and borders then added for the seams. The chip is padded out with a rectangular foam block, and folded-up strips of aluminium foil are used to strengthen the legs.
The next natural improvement would be to actually embed a real OP-07 within, and have conductive threads sewn into the various legs.

Very sweet. Read more on the Wolf’s Junkyard blog.
