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.

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 Microsoft may have also found that the belly roll is obsolete.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.
Please see the result first.
First, please see the result without saying anything. This is a live-action version of "turning paper" of the file copy of Windows.
...... What a tremendous disappointment! Now I can see a lot of people are trying to close the browser tab. I can see.
Wait. That animation of file copy has been deformed. The real thing is crude, can you think so?
Pingu of clay animation is cute, but the real penguins smell fishy because they always eat fish. It is the same as this. (I'm not saying it is good or bad. The real thing is like this.)
The trick is for fish.
I thought of excuse, but this is beyond excuse. The reason why I lost is that the materials were easy to notice, although I thought they were inconspicuous.

It might not visible for fish, but the readers of this website aren't fish. (I'd like to say that our website is targeting women in their 20s and fish.)
After all, what degrades the whole atmosphere is...
a human power!
But even if this is driven by motor, its crudeness won't be brushed away. Even if motor is used, Pingu will never appear, and squeaking fishy penguin will appear instead.
I don't want such a pathos of industrial revolution.
This is Plan B. I gave up using a fishing line.
I decided to make a paper in each frame.
But it was unexpectedly difficult to fix the paper with fluffy round feeling, not being bent completely, so it took time.
(It was so hard that I made its width 100 pixels larger than the photo of "human power!" two frames before.)
I'll put the finished one on the wall.
Windows 6(th floor: Wall of the conference room)
How should I say? It looks like installation. I don't know the meaning of the installation, but I am using the word by guess without searching. (Even after searching, I still don't know well.)
This is a file copy of Windows seen from the side.
From the point of view of the folder of sender, "I sent the file."
From the point of view of the folder of "receiver", "Oh, it's coming!"
Such a dynamic thing has been done. Copying 1 GB file must be very hard. As it is heavy, looks like it has inertia.
Now I'm going to move this.
Please understand it.
I put the papers one by one which had been placed in alignment before, and made an animation.
This is the real "turning paper" at the time of copying in Windows. I'll show you in the traditional animated GIF.
This was what we say "turning paper".
And this is the state of file copy of Windows seen obliquely, which nobody has ever seen.
It is a really hard movement.
I won't be angry to see the sign "rest 1 hour" to copy the file any more. I am the man in Tokyo who understands how Windows feels best.
I think "it takes an hour to copy, very long", and do another task. During that time, it secretly extends the time showing "another 5 hours to complete". It is as if seeing myself.
By the way, this was taken on the gray wall.
The replaced file appears and disappears on the table at the lower right. This has imaged accidentally.
In spite of this, I wanted to show it because the file flies so speedy.
It was over midnight when I completed.
I cut my fingers.
After many twists and turns, I could see the "turning paper" of the file copy of Windows. While I was recording frame by frame, I was half in doubt that it could really show the movement. When I turned it to animation in Photoshop, it could.
It is nonsense to point out that eventually it can be seen in only the computer.
