These Post-It Notes Slowly Transform Into Beautiful 3D Art As You Use Them

Now this is the revolution in sticky notes we've all been waiting for. Once you've depleted your stack of post-its, all you're left with is a sad, plain backing card. That's no longer the case with Triad Inc.'s "Omoshiro Blocks", which, note-by-note, turn into amazing pieces of 3D art.

You'll have to go through some 100 sheets, but once you do, your desk will be gifted a beautiful new feature, like Tokyo's Kiyomizudera Temple below.

And there's more than just buildings -- here are some examples of a piano and violin respectively.

Unfortunately, the blocks are both hard to get and expensive. According to Colossal's Johnny Strategy, you'll have to part with 4000-10,000 yen ($45-$133) and you can only buy them from Tokyo Hands' Umeda store in Japan.

If you're planning a trip however (and don't mind the price tag), I can't think of a better present for the perpetual note-taker.
