Origami-Inspired Self-Assembling Materials (image) North Carolina State University Caption Researchers will use experiments and computational models to evaluate the folding process in order to develop new multi-functional 3-D structures that can form rapidly while retaining precise control over their shape. This work builds on previous research from NC State. Credit Michael Dickey, North Carolina State University Usage Restrictions Image credit must be given.
