Not your typical white paper

Origami

Sure, plenty of them are dull, but then you've probably never seen white papers like these. The late Dr. David Huffman, who developed a coding method used to help compress MP3 and JPEG files, was also a fan of origami--and we're not talking little cranes for the Christmas tree.

Huffman, a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was a master of computational origami, which uses mathematical equations to create seemingly impossible structures from single sheets of paper--no cuts, no glue, lots of breathtaking beauty. You can admire a couple of his spiraling creations and read more about the man and his hobby here.
