The word, origami, comes from the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. By using this origami structure, the deformable wheel can be built without using many mechanical parts; the wheel is built with a single piece of sheet, with specific folds. Moreover, because of the characteristic that the structure constrains its own movement, it is possible to control the shape of the wheel using only a few actuators. The proposed design for the deformable wheel shows the possibility of using origami structure as a functional structure with its own mechanism. The deformable wheel robot use the ball-shaped waterbomb origami pattern, so-called magic-ball pattern. The magic-ball origami pattern is a well-known pattern that changes its shape from a long cylindrical tube to a flat circular tube. By using this special structure, a wheel with mechanical functionalities can be achieved.

You must go see this live-- one of the most creative uses of a real-time infographic I've seen in a long time! I love this kind of stuff!
Go see it live right now: http://dustn.ws/realtimeinternet
The screencap I have below only shows 30 seconds but it will keep going and going as long as you're on the page!
The creators of this infographic (that may not even be the name for it) basically took data from all over the place such as:
- Number of tweets in a day
- Number of hours of watched every hour
- Number of +1's per day
- Number of Apple and apps downloaded every day
And used that data to break down that data by second so that they could display it in real time. Really brilliant stuff. I almost feel like it's worthy of it's own blog post on ... #idea
Anything about this surprise you?
HT and for the find!
