Industrial Designer Creates Origami Printer — The Pop-Up City
3D printing is becoming a true hype, and origami has always been restricted to the most patient and agile. Christophe Guberan, a third-year bachelor student of industrial design at the University of Art and Design in Lausanne, Switzerland, created Hydro-Fold, a printer that is able to print pieces of origami paper.
“Different patterns, grids and shapes can be printed on paper using this specific liquid. While drying, the paper contorts, folds and retracts around the printed and humid areas, transforming it self from a 2-dimensional paper sheet to a 3-dimensional structure where lines become edges and surfaces become volumes.”
Josef Albers would go propobably mad, but it does seams like fun idea though.
