Zax, that is really really cool!! You are moving up the complexity chain of automata. ;)

thank you, simple but quite nice paper automata ... :)
I don't glue much at the moment, so I'm having fun with these automatas ... soon I will add some wood automatas or printed on a 3D printer (it will be in the Alternative Materials section) ;)
