    Hi all!

    I just watched the American Inventor show tonight and the finalist picked from L.A. is a teacher who created an all-in-one r/c kit specifically for customer self-designed paper models using PC software (included with the kit I suppose).

    With any luck his idea will come to market.:grin:

    I'd like to give you more specifics, but hard to track his name down, etc. right now.

    my mom called me about this guy, because all his models are made from paper

    There are already similar products on the market. He says he has a program to do the modeling. I wonder what that is?

    His name was Ricky DeRennaux. There is a blurb and a screen cap of some of the models partway down on this page.

    I just can't believe the snarkiness of this comment on that page:

    "Not very green"!?! As opposed to what, plastic is "greener"? Paper is a renewable and recyclable resource. States are now starting to outlaw plastic shopping bags in favor of paper. Paper models not "green"? Sheesh :-/

    Isn't this almost akin to trying to patent the wheel? It's obviously been done before...:twisted:
