Radical Origami
November 2, 2017 7:29 PM   Subscribe

By reimagining the kinks and folds of origami as atoms in a lattice, researchers are uncovering strange behavior hiding in simple structures. Statistical mechanics is not my area of expertise (hahaha) but, as much as I can grasp, it's fascinating in its use of origami structures with deliberate faults. The Origami Revolution is a Nova program about all the new ways origami is being used.

This is EXTENSIVELY MY JAM. I did attempt to type 'extremely' but I thank autocorrect for a great new hyperbole.

Wow, really fascinating stuff.

Between the Folds is another documentary about origami and science and it's excellent.

Without doing experiments, Assis said, it’s hard to say exactly how the origami changes at this transition point.
How can he have resisted experimented with throwing more and more defects in? Or is the thing that he's done it, but he can't identify a behavioral change and the model is too abstract to point him at what he should be looking for?
