Cloudy today, but so happy that my day started at 0830:
Even though I was running on 3 hours of sleep from a meeting earlier that morning (0400 Japan time meeting) for the duration of the fireworks I was wide awake.
I attempted to take a few picture during the first barrage but quickly decided it was much more pleasant to watch with my eyes than through the eyes of a camera.
Of course, after watching the fireworks and arriving at a friend’s to cook and eat I promptly died on the floor for about two hours until dinner was ready.
I woke at 0830 today, so I got aound 9 hours of sleep?
I think I should just sleep earlier on weekdays.
Anyway, today will be writing a first draft proposal for the self folding origami project.
The objective is apparently to realize either a product which is potentially marketable or will inspire others (artists, scientists, architects, and engineers all) to take a look at this interesting concept of combining paper and electronics.
Kate Stone: DJ decks made of… paper
There are also collections of projects similar to what we’re trying to do:
So if you had some smart paper embedded with electronics that could fold into whatever you wanted, what would you ask the paper to become?
