Description

  • NOVA: Secrets of Origami The century old tradition of folding two-dimensional paper into three-dimensional shapes is now at the heart of a scientific revolution. Engineers and designers are discovering how, by adopting the principles of origami, they are able to reshape the world around us... and even within us. The rules of folding are at the heart of many natural phenomena, from how leaves blossom to how beetles fly. But now, origami is being adopted in designing new drugs, micro-robots, even future space missions! With this burgeoning field of origami-inspired-design, the questions is: can the mathematics of origami be boiled down to one elegant algorithm - a fail-proof guidebook to make any object out of a flat surface, just by folding? And if so, what, what would that mean for the future of design? Explore the high-tech future of this age-old art as NOVA unfolds the secrets of Origami.
