784: (234/365) Fold-me Elmo

Posted by wonko on August 22, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

Flipping through Tanteidan convention books I have I came across a delightful little figure that was screaming to be folded in orange: This is Riki Saito’s “Mr Puppet Man”, but I reckon he looks a lot like “Elmo” so I am calling it so. (On second thoughts, isn’t Elmo Red? Oh well, never mind)

783: (233/365) Simple Money Box

Posted by wonko on August 21, 2017 in 365-2017, boxes, geometry |

I quite like the apparent simplicity of this design: Folded from a square split on the 1/3 line, larger piece making the base, smaller for the lid, this ingenious design neatly makes a moneybox, coin slot and all.

782: (232/365) Wedge Flex

Posted by wonko on August 20, 2017 in 365-2017, geometry, wtf |

Topologically convoluted geometric modulars confuse the brain – shapes that morph into different shapes in stable but seemingly unpredictable ways are fascinating: This is a wedge-flex – a modular hinged construction of a series of triangular prisms (wedges) that fold, bend, twist and re-align in interesting configurations.

781: (231/365) Naomiki Sato’s First Pentagonal Rose

Posted by wonko on August 19, 2017 in 365-2017, flower, geometry |

I am seriously attempting to perfect the “rose” form in Origami. In my mind, there is no better master of this flower than Naomiki Sato: I bought his book (and DVD) entitled “Rose” and am determined to work though the various forms presented therein. This is called his “first pentagonal rose” and I can see […]

780: (230/365) Bernie Peyton’s Woman In A Burqa

Elected members of the senate have a responsibility to represent their constituents: When an elected member plans and then executes a stunt designed to trivialise, demonise and poke fun at an Islamic traditional garment some women choose to wear, I find deeply it offensive.

779: (229/365) Karma Chameleon

Posted by wonko on August 17, 2017 in 365-2017, animal, nature, reptile |

I went looking for something reptilian to fold today (not sure why) and found this little charmer designed by Marc Vigo: Using a series of rabbit ears on a 2×1 rectangle, you isolate legs, head and tail rather cleverly.

778: (228/365) Ferris Wheel

Posted by wonko on August 16, 2017 in 365-2017, machine, seasonal |

In the Brisbane CBD today is a public holiday for the RNA Show: I stopped going to the show when our kids asked whether we had to go again this year – it is huge, full of people, end of winter and full of flu.   I also had a go at capturing it in […]

777: (227/365) Icosahedral Prism

Posted by wonko on August 15, 2017 in 365-2017, Crease Pattern, geometry |

So I was messing with a low-grade triangle grid and what to do with it (I often fold grids to keep my eye in) and came across a rather neat geodesic hemisphere that used a section of it: So I cut 2 the same size and proceeded to collapse – one fits inside the other […]

775 (225/365) Boney McBoneface – New Legs

Posted by wonko on August 13, 2017 in 365-2017, humanoid |

So today I got up at 3.30am to catch a shuttle bus to the other side of the city at 4.30am so I could register for the charity walk I had agreed to accompany my daughter on: 35kms later, we made it to the finish line and most of my bits currently hate me. I […]
