Complex Origami

One of the things that appealed to me the most this week was when we practiced origami. I’ve never really been all that interested in origami so of course I thought it was probably really easy most of the time and didn’t require as much thought and precision as it really does. It’s so important and popular that during my research I found out that there is an origami competition held every two years in Japan. I did some research and found out that one of the three largest origami cranes in the world was constructed by Akita Japan residents and had a wingspan of 206.7 feet!

Obviously there is the lesser complex origami like what we did in class, but there are also super complex and incredibly complicated designs out there. The video I included the link to shows the top 10 most complex origami in the year 2014. I’m sure things have changed since then but while you watch I think it would be cool to just think about the precision and accuracy that has to go into this to make it look so realistic.

Here’s the link:
