STORY Jul 28, 2015
I would like to put out the world-famous animation in the real world.
When I copy a file in Windows, paper fly animation is displayed. The paper "turns" on the way.
That's strange. What is happening? I have never seen a paper flying like that.
But I want to see the real thing that "turns". And I want to fully understand "Oh, this it. It was being shown".
This is it.
This is the flying paper that "turns." I often gaze blankly at it during work. The total time I have stared at it might be the one season of the drama "24".
The paper jumps out to the upper right, "turns" in the center, and flies to the lower right.
I wonder if this movement really exists. Only that the designer might have made a movement to look good as an animation.
No, perhaps a worker of Microsoft may have seen the movement by chance when his document was flown on a windy day. (And he put the movement like a revelation into OS.)
But if I fly a work paper and wait it to move in that way by chance, it will take about 50 years. So I decided to reproduce it on my own.
I look at how it "turns" carefully.
I wrote down each frame of animation, and it moved as follows.
Division image of the "turning paper"
Even this cannot show the movement clearly (especially around the center), so I color its rear side, separate it and look carefully.
1st half: "Lower right turns up gradually." "Soon it flies over the corner of the paper on the other side."
It jumps out to the upper right, "turns" in the center, and flies to the lower right.
2nd half: "The side beyond the corner of the other side" "comes out from the bottom, and then enters the folder of the destination."
This is the belly roll, isn't it?
It is moving like the belly roll of high jump. File copy is a belly roll! It is a jump which was driven away by Fosbury flop, and it is in the position of 9 on 9 volleyball.
I forgot to say this "turning paper" isn't in Windows 7 and later OS. Microsoft may have also found that the belly roll is obsolete.
This is an image of belly roll (former "turning file") seen from obliquely.
Probably it can be seen obliquely as this.
Take notice to the right lower part, which starts to roll, it looks as if turning like a screw for the flying direction.
I drew the movement of the rolling corner in orange.
Pull the paper in a certain direction, and pull the rolling part like twisting, and it may "turn" to fly. Aha! I can see!
I bought the materials from the handicraft shop.
