New Category: Origami

Origami needs its own category. Seriously.  Yes, there is a 'paper' category under living and yes, there is a 'paper airplanes' category under play but origami deserves its own home. Even though I've posted a lot of origami in the paper category, I always feel weird doing it since I feel like Living, Paper is for stuff like making paper, books, cards, and maybe paper craft (though this should be under the play category and maybe have a section of its own too). I've also posted a few things in the paper airplane's category because it's flying origami but still don't feel like it's the right place for it. I feel like origami much better fits under the Play area (instead of living) and there is definitely enough of it to warrant its own category. Please give the orphan origami a home.

Origami Jack in the Box

Somewhere I saw something about how to make an origami jack in the box and I was wondering if anyone on here knew how to make one that could sort of explain how to make one to me. I looked it up on google but only found a diagram that, for me, was very hard to follow. Can help me with this? Thanks!

DNA twisted into boxes

A news article in Nature reports on a group that has constructed three dimensional boxes, including a lockable lid, from DNA. Using specifically designed oligonuclitides, the boxes self-assemble chemically from long strands of DNA in solution. According to the article, "It takes only an hour or two for billions of boxes to form by themselves."The article include both "artists conceptions" and electron-microscope images of the actual objects.Update 13 May 2009: The Nature article above has been put into restricted access. Here is a Science News report which is not restricted.

Featured Author Interview: watchmeflyy

Hello! I recently had the joy of interviewing watchmeflyy. Connie Yu was interviewed quite awhile ago, but her interview went missing for a time when the featured author interviews stopped. Since we've changed up the format a little, I wanted to share some of her answers that didn't make it into the interview. If you have any more questions that you would like watchmeflyy to answer, here's the place to do it! Where are you from? Do you feel like your home affects how you work or what you create? I was born and raised in the west side San Francisco, a 10 minute jog from the Pacific Ocean, but my parents trace their roots back to Guangdong province in China. Growing up in a low-income family of immigrants, I couldn't just ask for model plane kits or other toys that my peers flaunted; I had to come up with my own toys and use what I had to entertain myself, my way. This developed my resourcefulness and creativity early on, so I'm glad not to have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth. As for what I create, that mainly just depends on my mood. The quote "Necessity is the mother of invention" usually applies, as I make whatever I refuse to buy. You do such lovely work with wire; what is about that medium that you love? I love how wire can be so flexible yet so sturdy at the same time. Unlike paper, wire creations are generally more durable and harder to crush. It also lacks the problem of having excess sticking out; excess wire can be cut off, whereas excess paper must be tucked in somehow (no cutting in origami...). These added benefits over paper give wire more versatility, as I feel less limited in the creations that I can make. Your pop culture oriented (geek) projects are such fun. What draws you create such projects? Those geeky projects help me enter the worlds that I explore through books and movies. While I don't participate in cosplay, I do enjoy bringing little parts of the stories to life, and it's so much more fun when you have your own tale of how you created. For example, if you check out my Simple Suspended Shelf project, you can see pictures of a ceramic Haku from Spirited Away that I made in ceramics class – a tale of perseverance that I recount in exhaustive detail when anyone asks about the awesome dragon in my room. I also like my geeky projects because I can attach a special meaning to them as a continual reminder to myself. My wire Masamune from "FFX: Auron's Masamune" serves as a continual reminder of Auron's strength and determination to inspire my own, and my Aperture tank top from Portal: Chell's Tank Top (which I wear to sleep next to the plush Companion Cube that my mom and I made, of course) reminds me that if Chell could survive trial after trial, so can I.

Glaze/Plastic/Glass Look for Paper?

So I am planning on making an Origami figure as a birthday present for a special friend I am going to be investing at least 24 hours just for the Origami and additional time with the accompanying objects. I want the present to last so i was wondering if there is any like spray on plastic, glaze, epoxy or something that looks like glass or see through plastic so it will make it look pretty and increase durability? It would be also nice if it were water proof. Since i am investing a lot of time into this "Project" any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, AWX

Paper Airplane Contest 6 (Closed)

To coincide with the publishing of my one hundredth instructable, I am hosting a sixth paper airplane contest (PAC6). However, unlike my previous contests, this one is aimed at origami aviators just beginning their flights. Although the previous “PAC5” has yet to conclude, I feel it is an appropriate time to start up another contest, due to the different aims of the two. For this contest, the specification is for a trainer paper airplane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to fly at least 25 feet (7.62 meters) from a launch height of 5 feet or higher • Durability to fly at least 25 feet, at least 15 times • At least two of the following must be featured on your aircraft: flaps, elevators, rudders, ailerons, spoilers, elevons, decelerons, spoilerons, flaperons, air brakes, slots, and/or slats • Allowed materials include: 2 sheets of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper, 8 inches of Scotch tape, scissors, a stapler, 5 staples, a ruler, a pencil, pen, and 2 paper clips • Aircraft must be named 2. Instructables Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) devoted solely to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 6 (https://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-6/)” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. However, unlike previous contests, each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 3 month Instructables Pro membership. *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How to Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My NGT Paper Airplane [Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. (The “NGT” acronym refers to Next Generation Trainer, in order to distinguish it from PAC5 entries). I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Entries". Judging: I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance and suitability, rather than shape, is a more objective approach. The contest begins Friday, June 17, 2011 and ends Friday, July 15, 2011. Entries must be published before Friday, July 15, 2011. From July 16 to July 18, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, July 19, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, July 20, 2011. Entries: wat.: "Hammerhead Glider II" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Hammerhead-Glider-II/) vishalapar: "Smoothliner IV" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Smoothliner-4/) Results: 1st Place: vishalapar: "Smoothliner IV" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Smoothliner-4/) 2nd Place: wat.: "Hammerhead Glider II" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Hammerhead-Glider-II/)

Paper Airplane Contest 8 (Closed)

As summer ends and school begins, the need for great paper airplanes increases again. Because of that, I have decided to attempt to coax instructablers everywhere into designing a new paper airplane to perform common requirements. In addition, I have decided to increase the prize values. Instead of the first place being a 3 month Ibles Pro Membership, I have raised it to a 1 Year Ibles Pro membership. Perhaps that will stir interest among this site's many innovative creators, eh? :) For this contest, the specifications are for a multirole airplane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to: (A) fly at least 50 feet; (B) perform at least one full loop, wingover and/or half Cuban eight and fly a further 15 feet; and (C) carry at least four 100mg toothpicks • Up to three differently configured variants can be submitted to fill the A, B and C capabilities. Between these three there must be at least 60% commonality in construction. • Durability to fly at least 20 flights • Use of less than 15 inches (0.381 meters) of tape in construction • Use of less than 6 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction • Aircraft must be named (if there are multiple variations, identify each distinctly) 2. Instructable Requirements: • 1 page (not the intro page) strictly devoted to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft (if there are multiple variations, illustrate how to fly each) • The instructable (or instructables’) license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 8.” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 3 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. Each patch will feature its respective aircraft, rather than medals. The first place winner will also receive a 1 Year Instructables.com Pro membership if his/her plane meets or exceeds all specifications. *Multiple entries are allowed.

Laser Cutter Origami

The New Yorker printed an article about engineer/physicist turned professional origami artist Robert Lang. He's dropped by Instructables/Squid Labs to use the laser cutter to score curves otherwise impossible to fold; it's some neat stuff. This spawned a comment thread on using origami techniques to mold concrete for the Universal Nut Sheller. (Scroll up one comment for first post in the thread.)I don't know how long the article will be available, so here's the laser cutter's cameo:One clear, chilly day not long ago, I met Lang at Squid Labs, a high-tech research-and-development company headquartered in an enormous concrete building that used to be part of the Alameda Naval Air Station, near Oakland. Lang and his wife and their teen-age son live about twenty miles east of Oakland, in a comfortable ranch-style house that has a separate studio building in the back yard, where Lang works amid a clutter of math books, seashell guides, computers, and a menagerie of paper animals. He was spending the day at Squid Labs to use its industrial laser cutter to help him crease paper for some complex folds. He said that he may be the first origami artist to use a laser cutter, which he dials down to a smidgen of its power, so that it scores the paper rather than slices it. Lang was working on paper prototypes for two commissions: one for an interior-design piece to be made of metal, another for a leather fashion accessory, and on a design he was making for himself, which he didn't want to describe, in case he jinxed it. All three of the designs were so intricate that it would have taken him hours just to crease the paper in preparation for the final folds. He was using large squares of tweedy-looking mauve Hanji paper from Korea, which is sturdy but still slightly translucent, like the flesh of a fish.

oschene - The Spiral Data Tato -- A Curiously Complex Origami CD Case - Universal Laser Cutter Finalist!

To see who won the VersaLaser, read the announcement here.oschene was a finalist in the 2008 Instructables and Universal Laser Cutter Contest for:The Spiral Data Tato -- A Curiously Complex Origami CD CaseShould this project win the grand prize VersaLaser laser cutter package from Universal Laser worth over $15,000? Help us judge the contest by rating this forum post! Audience votes will count for 20% of the total. Check out all the finalists, and vote for your favorites!This is a forum post created by the Instructables staff on behalf of the finalist. First of all, let me express my delight to be included in such a group. That something as ephemeral as an origami model should be considered alongside phaser pistols and solar furnaces is, to my mind, an accomplishment in itself and speaks to the breadth of interest of those who belong to this site.What would I do with a laser cutter?. Well, after cutting my initials into every metal object in the house, I would use it to score crease patterns. That sounds not so interesting, hunh? I am a paper folder and I have been investigating curved folds and twist folds in the past few years. Laser scoring makes it possible to dream up and realize models in minutes that might otherwise take hours and hours of precreasing. Perhaps more importantly, you'd be able to identify a blind alley almost immediately. There are things out there on the developable surface you'd be amazed to see -- well, I'm always amazed -- and the ability to laser score these ideas as they come would be extremely freeing.You know, unlike every other schnook in the modern world, I maintain a blog -- come visit me and learn the ways of Open Source Origami. (I'm not the only one, you know -- there's lots of us and the idea is spreading.)

Paper Airplane Contest 3 (Closed)

In hopes of seeing more paper airplanes and innovative designers on Instructables.com, I have decided to host a third mini-contest. My goal is to stimulate the paper airplane channel and encourage more paper airplane builders to post their innovative designs. For this contest, the specification is for a stunt plane. Requirements: 1. Aircraft Requirements: • Ability to perform a loop, wingover and/or a Cuban eight • Durability to fly at least 15 flights • Use of less than 15 inches (0.381 meters) of tape in construction • Use of less than 5 pieces of 8.5 by 11 inch (A4) paper in construction 2. Instructables Requirements: • 1 page strictly devoted to materials required in construction • 1 page explaining how to fly the aircraft • The instructable's license must be: "Attribution Non-commercial Share Alike (by-nc-sa)" • This sentence and link must be displayed on your entry's intro page: “This instructable is an entry in Paper Airplane Contest 3 (https://www.instructables.com/community/Paper-Airplane-Contest-3-Open/).” Prizes: For this contest I will award the publishers of the top 5 performing paper airplanes* one patch each. The first place winner will also receive a 3 month Pro membership. These patches will be medals (1st place, Patch with Gold Medal image and 3 month Pro membership; 2nd Place, Patch with Silver Medal image; 3rd Place, Patch with Bronze Medal Image; 4th Place, Patch with 4th Place lettering; 5th Place, Patch with 5th Place lettering). *Multiple entries are allowed. To keep the distribution of patches wide however, each entrant can only win one prize. How To Enter: To enter this contest, you must send me a private message entitled “My Paper Airplane [Member Name Here]” with your instructable's URL included. I will then put the link and author's name onto a list on this topic under "Current Entries". Judging: For this contest, I have decided that I will judge all the planes myself based on abilities. I have decided this way because I believe judging on performance rather than shape is a more objective approach. The contest begins Monday, March 14, 2011 and ends Friday, April 8, 2011. Entries must be published before Friday, April 8, 2011. From April 8 to April 11, I will be judging all entries. I will announce the winners of the contest on Tuesday, April 12, 2011 and issue them their prizes Wednesday, April 13, 2011. Entries: ATTILAtheHUNgry: (https://www.instructables.com/id/Worlds-best-Paper-Airplane-simple-and-sturdy/) heavyfire88: "The Outsider" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Ready-for-the-competition-The-Outsider/) Results: 1st Place: heavyfire88: "Outsider" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Ready-for-the-competition-The-Outsider/) 2nd Place: ATTILAtheHUNgry: "Havoc*" (https://www.instructables.com/id/Worlds-best-Paper-Airplane-simple-and-sturdy/) *Unofficial name

Help to find folding paper box

Hi I found a video on how to make a paperbox (possible origami, not sure) but I can't seem to find it again It was a box with sections and you could fold the box like a "magic box" and inside you could put truffles or whatever (hidden until you flipped the sides of the box) Does anyone now where I saw this or how to make it?, I don't remember what keyword I used and am desperate to find it Thanks //Jessica
