Using a Motor for Shape-Change in Paper

I have started to explore technical methods for enabling shape-change in paper designs. The first design selected for exploration was a simple accordion shape. A regular servo motor was connected to an eccentric cam, with an extending rod. This was attached to the top flap of the paper. The bottom paper flap was taped to the table. An LDR was connected to the circuit to act as a button, and an Arduino Uno was used for control. Variations in light resulted in the paper folding and unfolding.
