MAKE Flickr photo pool member iZoo posted up one of those creepy paper dragons that follow you as you walk around it… – Link. And here’s the same one, along with a link to a PDF so you can make your own – Link. Might be fun to make a -really- large one for Halloween.

    Oh no! The video ruins the illusion. Great stuff though. That’s a fun little decoration.

    I made one of these a long time ago, it was neat. The big one would be cool, except you have to close one eye for it to work.

    Neat trick
