Robby Kraft Combines Mathematics and Paper to Fold Incredible Origami

Robby Kraft teaches code and design to artists at Parsons School of Design and School for Poetic Computation, NYC. It was around 2013, he learnt more on origami by attending Erik Demaine’s lectures at MIT and through books by Robert Lang. Brooklyn based software engineer is dedicated to explore the beauty of math and physical sciences, and using the disciplines to create incredible origami sculptures. He has been making use of algorithmic code to design intricate origami patterns.

His work has been featured in publications such as Forbes, The Daily Beast, and Gizmodo. He and his team has won the final five slot in the global NASA challenge for developing paper prototypes of self-folding robots that could repair damaged rovers on Mars.
