You Need a Surgeon's Skills To Build a Tiny Working V8 Engine From Paper

The real thing can weigh upwards of 600 pounds, but the V8 engine Aliaksei Zholner built would barely register on a scale because it’s only slightly larger than a ping-pong ball and made from nothing but paper and glue.

The tiny engine has a piston stroke of just six millimeters and cylinders that are only five-and-a-half millimeters in diameter. The whole thing can be powered manually using a pair of fingers, but it’s even more impressive when connected to a can of compressed air which really gets the little V8 roaring.
