How to Make Electric Origami: a Great Combination


Origami is an art form that has a certain essence. It is beautiful, created by hand, and many times involves great detail within its making and presentation. To keep up with the times, you can now mix technology and origami together by adding electric lighting to it.

Evil Mad Scientist have outlined how you can recreate the popular folding box item with electrical lights and still allow it to fold. Two different methods are possible to make such a box: “Freezer Paper” or “Direct Toner”, and both are explained in great detail and instructions.

By the combination of LED and a little further involvement of the project, a neat lit box is provided which may be hung as a decoration, left to dazzle guests, or simply a way to prove to yourself you can both create Origami work and add some tech to it.

    What a clever idea! I love origami, but it isn’t practical as a hobby, really. This makes it a bit more useful. 🙂 Thanks for sharing, Tal. 🙂
