Bulletproof Origami?



Shown above is the new possibilities for origami. At Brigham Young University, students are working on a sturdy,deployable bulletproof shield by using origami folds. A twelve layered bulletproof sheet is folded into a tessellation, and acts as a defense system for police. This is how origami can be applied to real life. The fold can currently stop gun shots, and is still being tested, because it recently came out on Feburary 15th of 2017, five days from now. Origami can be used for many things, such as gifts, for a satellite, or fora shield such as this. Hopefully origami can provide new innovative technology that we can use in our everyday lives.
