In constant motion yet remains in place... very zen.
Ispired by [AusCan]'s Ultra Compact Christmas Tree, this Christmas tree would need no tree at all and hang from the ceiling.
Every led light, ball, and ornament are wafer thin when packed away but spring origamically into 3d shapes when unpacked and are counterballanced in ever widening concentric
patterns to form a conical tree shape.
The slightest breeze in the room sets each individual section to rotating merrily at random.
Merry Christmas y'all.
