Summary

Origami is the art of intricately folding a sheet of paper into elaborate three-dimensional (3D) sculptures and objects. In this issue, two reports focus on different aspects of the thriving field of origami engineering. On page 644, Felton et al. (1) report on origami morphing structures, and on page 647, Silverberg et al. (2) report on origami-based metamaterials.
