These days people in Japan have turned viral a video shared by a Twitter user demonstrating the quick pop-up action of a Haruki Nakamura ’s handcrafted “Penguin Bomb.”

So what’s a Penguin Bomb? It’s an explosively cute work made by expert paper craftsman Haruki Nakamura. But this is not the only piece of paper art he has designed.

Japanese designer Haruki Nakamura has a knack for creating all kinds of interesting paper objects from puzzles to kirigami toys (kirigami is the art of cutting paper, just as origami is the art of folding paper). Another of his great designs is this awesome squeezable paper puppet that reveals a sheep wearing wolf’s clothing.

Nakamura sells all of his designs in an online shop, but currently only ships within Japan.
