What if you could make any object out of a flat sheet of paper?
That future is on the horizon thanks to new research by L. Mahadevan, the Lola England de Valpine Professor of Applied Mathematics, Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, and Physics at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).
Mahadevan and his team have characterized a fundamental origami fold, or tessellation, that could be used as a building block to create almost any three-dimensional shape, from nanostructures to buildings. The research is published in Nature Materials.
When we think of FDM 3D printers, we think Cartesian; the print head always rides along rails in the X- and Y-axes, and the machines are cubic in form. But the developers behind the stunningly low-cost Tiko have literally been thinking outside of the box, adopting a triangular form factor
This pine grove in Poland contained a high number of these remarkably-shaped trees, which prompted theories on their causation ranging from snowfall to meteorites to fungal infections. But ultimately, consensus stated that the trees
I saw The Force Awakens on Friday, and I can't talk about it. I didn't want to see it so early, but as someone who spends a lot of time on the internet for work, I was already coming across spoilers last week and figured I'd better see it before
For every structural breakthrough with carbon fiber or nanotubes, it's interesting to see we still haven't maxed out the capabilities of more common materials. A trio of origami-minded researchers have discovered that if you cut common paper into a particular zig-zag pattern, then join it with another sheet of the
To bend wood, you need steam. The typical way to do this is to build a steam box that fits your part-to-be-bent inside. But there are three drawbacks to this method: The box must be sized to fit your piece; when you remove your piece from the box and transport
