Hello. I am Taka.
I am very interested in origami at present.
There are two reasons.
I have heard that origami applies to space engineering.
Electricity for an artificial satellite being active is obtained by solar power.
Solar panels should be as big as possible.
However, to carry the satellite by a rocket,
the solar panels have to be folded as small as possible and besides they are easily unfolded.
Then, the idea of the Origami is used for that.
One of the folding methods is so-called Miura map folding.
The other reason is following.
I have heard that the research area of origami exists in mathematics.
I have also heard that international conferences about origami are held.
Please see the above picture.
I made them.
One rose can be created with one piece of paper.
This is so-called Kawasaki rose.
Dr. Kawasaki is mathematician.
He created this folding.
I did not know that the Japanese traditional 'origami' applies to scientific areas.
So, you get interested in origami, don't you?
