Something to do?

Amazing Origami V-12 Four-Stroke Engine Runs on Pure Ingenuity | Gadget Lab from Wired.com

I found this amazing. I don't think I could do this.

The origami engine. Absolutely knocks your socks off. Splendid. Wow.
I know I could not make one.

Thanks Rustic 23

That's amazing! The epic Anime music is a nice touch on the video.

I love the comments at the end slamming it as not true origami - wow, top candidates for getting a life.

I have to confess that my first thought on seeing the engine was that "this isn't origami."

I think the 'origami' title was put on the work by some other than the creator. On his web site he calls them 'Paper Models'. He does have a section called 'Origami Architecture'. I don't know if it qualifies or not. It is still something I don't think I could do even with his kits. I did like his bi-plane, and it is a cool clock!
