Naturally, these ... design
Every child knows about origami. The skill of this oriental art lies in folding a flat sheet of paper into different -- and in some cases highly complex -- structures. Examples of origami also exist in the natural world. The wing of an earwig is a perfect illustration: its elaborate design is far more ingenious than ...

Origami has inspired the design of many engineering techniques, which are applied in fields such as robotics. Now a study published in Science finds that the earwig, amember of the group of insects that makeup the order dermaptera, has wings that can fold in such a manner as to put even the intricate ...
Like an earwig wing, the 3D printed wing is reportedly stable when it is unfurled and can be folded back onto itself with a simple touch. Though 3D printed prototypes are not quite as sophisticated as the earwig's natural wing, the scientists are making headway in studying its origami-like physiology.
23, 2018) – Researchers at Seoul National University (SNU) in South Korea have developed an origami-inspired robotic arm that is foldable, self-folding and also highly-rigid.

The wing of an earwig is a lot like origami—but its elaborate design is far more ingenious than anything humans can make. Researchers have been studying the secret of these wings and have created an artificial structure that functions on the same principle. When open, the earwig wing expands ten times ...
Because earwigs spend most of their time underground and only occasionally take to the air, they pack their wings into packages with a surface area more than 10 times smaller than when unfurled, using an origami-like series of folds. Springy wing joints let the insects bypass some of the mathematical ...

Folding something up tightly can save space. People who have lived in a tiny apartment know this. So do drone accessory designers, apparently. Designs inspired by the paper-folding tradition of origami have captured the imagination of inventors. But by definition, stuff that can fold has weak points.

Knowingly or unknowingly, we've all done origami sometime in our lives. Derived from the Japanese words, Oru and Kami, which literally mean paper folding, origami's premise is pretty simple: you start with a square or rectangular sheet of paper and transform it, through folding techniques, into a sculpture. It could be a ...
