Grayscale pattern produces origami structure

Grayscale pattern produces origami structure

A grayscale pattern used to create a self-folding flower is projected into a glass container. Light from the pattern forms a solid polymer which is differentially crosslinked, creating stress in the material. The structure folds when it is removed from the liquid. (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
