Interview with Shinya of Magnote

> Please tell us a little bit about yourself and your business.

We design and sell a whole new idea of paper craft robots called PIPEROIDs. Each of the robots (or set of 2 for PIPEROID characters) are made just from six paper pipes. The pipes are pre-drilled with holes, and all you need is a pair of scissors to cut the pipes according to the instructions. No need for a glue nor tape! It’s exciting and cute little robot gaining popularity amongst not only kids but also adults as an interior decoration item. People like to put them on kitchen counters, desk at home or office, and mantels for display.

> What are your favorite crafts and how did you first get involved with crafting?

Coming from Japan, I’ve been introduced to origami from when I was 3 years old and have loved paper crafts ever since.

> Are you super organized or messy?What does your workspace look like?

I try to be super organized but generally they end up being messy…

> Any exciting future plans or developments in the works for your business?

Piperoid, our paper pipe robot, is gaining popularity and spreading fast. Look out for new models coming in the next few months!
