In this instructable I will show you how to make a kaleidocycle. So, what is a kaleidocycle???
It's a folded-cut model that you can turn. And turn. And turn. It's pretty awesome, don't you think?

Step 1: What do you need?

Doesn't work- I tried several different times.

Could you share a picture of where it goes wrong for you? I've never had a problem with making these myself, so I would love to help you out where possible!

I was looking for a project to do tonight with my kids and this is perfect. Thanks :)

Whew. That took some effort.
Nice little craft, I'm sure it's easier once you get some practice in. Thanks!

Thank you so much! I have been wanting to learn how to make one of these for a long time now but didn't know what they were called and as a google search of "origami turing thingy" doesn't yield very many results, I have never found instructions. Very well put together instuctable!

Mooi mooi mooi! How long does it take to make a caleidocycle?

Bedankt bedankt bedankt!

5-10 minutes drawing, few minutes for cutting, 5-10 minutes taping so I would say 10-20 minutes :)
