There are some very impressive origami creations out there, but Jun Mitani has got to be one of the top geniuses when it comes to this art form. Considering that he is a professor of computer science at the University of Tsukuba by day, it comes as no surprise that Jun Mitani would be able to translate his smarts in one field to use it in another. Granted, the stereotype that scientifically-inclined individuals are not very artistically-inclined still holds.

In this case, Jun Mitani first creates his origami designs with the help of algorithms and computer software. Once he has finished one design, he scores the paper and starts to fold by hand. The result are 3D origami based on axisymmetrical shape. Stats for Axisymmetrical-Shaped Origami Trending: Older & Popular
