In addition to curing blindness and developing solar cars, the minds at MIT have found time to revolutionize the world of pop-up books by integrating electronics for more "dynamic interactivity."

According to the project page, "Popables" utilizes flexible, paper-based electronics to create "an interactive pop-up book that sparkles, sings, and moves." Imagine how this could revolutionize children's books, the greeting card industry and classics like The Pop Up Book of Sex and The Pop Up Book of Phobias.
