The Kid Should See This

A tiny balloon-powered organ made from paper & cardboard

With the exception of a piece of plastic that allows a peek at its inner workings, and a large balloon that provides required wind through its pipes, this tiny pipe organ is made out of paper and cardboard. It was designed and constructed by Belarus-based paper engineer Aliaksei Zholner, complete with 18 tiny keys and painstakingly-tuned reeds.

In case you missed it: Zholner also constructed an incredibly tiny, balloon-powered paper V8 engine.
