In recent decades origami structures and forms has been of increasing interest to mathematicians and engineers.
Mathematicians are more interested in the geometrical aspects of origami objects such as foldability of origami patterns, especially foldability of developable surfaces.
Engineers, on the other hand, are finding that traditional geometry and folding used for artistic paper models can be readily parameterised and applied to the development of new structures and devices.
Video 1 : Origami Structure Innovations
. Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. But to engineer Mary Frecker of Pennsylvania State University, it is the future for designing tools that could be used in fields such as medicine and space exploration. “Science of Innovation” is produced in partnership with the National Science Foundation and the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
