POPAPY is an instant paper craft that is made up in a microwave oven. With ordinary paper and designed special sheet, we can get 3D paper craft by 1-minute microwave cooking.

The special sheet is made from a combination of two materials, heat-shrinkable sheet and microwave-safe aluminum sheet. The aluminum sheet absorbs microwaves and provides heat energy to the heat-shrinkable sheet efficiently. Then the shrinking sheet bends and folds the paper. We established design method for the bending angle and bending timing by changing the size of the two materials.
