Abstract

No longer just the purview of artists and enthusiasts, origami engineering has emerged as a potentially powerful tool to create three dimensional structures on disparate scales. Whether origami (and the closely related kirigami) engineering can emerge as a useful technology will depend crucially on both fundamental theoretical advances as well as the development of further fabrication tools.
