I’ve heard of the fabled Tumble Wing before, but this video, by the genius team at WIRED have summed up just how to create and fly it in just a couple of minutes.
Here’s the video:

I tried to make one at my desk this morning, but I didn’t want to walk around the office holding it up. People already look at me weird enough. I could get it to do the tumbling thing pretty easily so, try it out in your spare time today.
