Origami: Not just flapping birds anymore!

I just found out about this TED talk video. Robert Lang, the speaker, is not just an origami genius: he’s also a really nice person, very approachable and unassuming despite his near-rock-star status in the origami world. At the past two origami conventions in New York City (organized by OrigamiUSA), people kept briefly mistaking me for him. There is some resemblance, especially if you look at younger photos of him. I don’t mind being mistaken for one of the greatest origami artists ever…

Much of the content of this video is given in greater depth in Lang’s book “Origami Design Secrets“.  I have the first edition, but it is now in its second edition with revised and expanded content (it is on my wishlist…).

Thanks to my mother for sending me the link to this video!
