Other Applications for Extreme Origami, Robert Lang folding software

Robert Lang uses computer-aided design to solve Origami problems. Solving one problem of where to put hundreds of creases leads to how do you figure out how to fold them? Forcing the crease angles to be regular makes it possible to develop tractable step-by-step folding sequences. This is being used for products from airbags to space telescopes

It can also be applied to magnetically inflated structures and DNA origami and protein engineering
