MIT has built a "garden" consisting of over 100 robots that fold up like origami, glow in changing colours, crawl and swim.
A Japanese producer is showing off his advanced face tracking and projection technology, and it's crazier than we could have ever imagined. Can you think of all the different ways society would use this kind of technology if it became mainstream?
On today's show, we're checking out a wild new advance in face tracking/projection tech, Nike's new all-LED basketball court for Kobe Bryant, and JPL's origami-inspired solar panels.
NASA has joined forces with an origami expert to meld art and technology in the creation of foldable solar structures that could one day go into space.
When it is connected to a power source, this flat robot folds itself into a 3D shape and starts walking.
Researchers are using the geometry of paper folding to come up with futuristic antennas that can retract and compress.
The Foldscope is a microscope that can be folded from a schematic printed on a piece of A4 paper and with a couple of additional components, it costs as little as 50 cents.
UC Berkeley researchers take their pet insect robot from the lab to a crowdfunding-fueled public debut as a DIY robotics kit.
Marc Hagan-Guirey explains how he transforms single pieces of paper into intricate scenes from "Star Wars" using the Japanese technique of kirigami.
The Planetary Society gets ready to launch its LightSail -- which travels via photon bombardment -- with the help of a Kickstarter campaign.
