Folding the future: materials and design strategies for origami robotics

Matthew Gardiner


Students will be given a lecture style overview of state-of-the-art origami and robotics technologies and processes followed by a workshop to create their own pre-designed oribots.

The students will be given some techniques and inspiration to understand design strategies for designing new oribotic mechanisms with an outlook towards future applications.  Students will form small teams to co-create prototypes for public experimentation.
