We’re in the drone age it seems, with a new design coming out regularly.

Recently, a new R/C modeled after a paper crane was demoed at Japan’s leading conference for emerging tech and electronics, the CEATEC Expo.

Made by Japanese electronic parts maker Rohm, the flying origami crane is called the Lazurite Fly and weighs barely over an ounce.

The flying origami crane features a carbon tube frame, two ultralight motors that power the flapping wings, and is comprised of 3D-printed nylon.
