Origami (ori is “folding” and kami is “paper” in Japanese) is a cultural tradition that has dazzled people for more than 500 years.
Despite its masterful productions, origami is not what we typically associate with high technology, but in this presentation we will look at many scientific fields that have adopted the principles of origami folding to produce the most amazing new constructions, from the tiniest to the largest of devices. Truly eye-opening.
