A ticker tape of life

A crowd gathered to watch the continuing stream of paper tickets that fell from the sky. The tickets had been falling for over a day, and people were starting to travel from further afield to watch the spectacle. The source of the tickets was unknown. They had been observed in the air currents for the past month, but up until now they had all remained afloat. Yesterday they started to fall, and they only fell in one location. As they touched the ground they seemed to be organising themselves into a coherent structure. A foot the size of an armchair was clearly visible.

Ho Yuan-fu, a train enthusiast in Taiwan, has constructed two robots made from old train tickets in Xinwuri Station, Taiwan. The two robots took 45 days to construct and will be animated to rotate their arms and light up at a given time each day.
