(An origami version of the Google Android robot)
|Material||Folded from one uncut square of ~22 inch green lokta paper|
This model resulted from my desire to design a model with a geeky theme that wasn't overly done by origami designers yet. Since there was only one origami android model at the time (a 2D version), I thought it'd be fun to make a 3D version. The antennas were the most difficult feature to incorporate in the model design. In the end, I chose a design where the arms and legs come from the corners of the paper, and the head and antennas come from the center of the paper.
This model became particularly relevant for me after I became a Google software engineering intern twice (summer 2013 and 2014). Although I didn't work with the Android team for either internship (I worked with YouTube the first time and with Google Maps for the second internship), I still had fun sharing my origami Android with my team members and other people I met at Google.
To be honest, I'm still not satisfied with this model. Being one of my early designs, the layers don't lock very well by themselves, and the arm and leg shaping is messy. I may redesign this Android model someday.
