Monthly Design Challenge - SEPTEMBER 2017

Postby juston » September 3rd, 2017, 12:31 am

The theme for this month's challenge is inflatable/waterbomb. Design a model that uses the waterbomb base in its construction and can be inflated to give it volume (see the images below for some examples).

RULES:
The model must be folded from a square.
The model doesn't need to be folded from a waterbomb base necessarily, just incorporate an inflatable waterbomb base into it's construction in one or more places.
Tony Koppers will judge.

If anyone needs further inspiration, Jeremy Shafer has created many inflatable models from the waterbomb base. Here are a few from his YouTube channel...
