InspirationReference - Android v1

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 challenging feature to incorporate into the model design. In the final design, the arms and legs come from the corners and the head and antennas from the paper's center.

This model became particularly relevant after I interned at Google twice (summer 2013 and 2014). Although I didn't work with the Android team for either internship, I still had fun sharing my origami Android with others.

I'm still unsatisfied with this model since the layers don't lock very well, and the arm and leg shaping is messy. I may redesign this Android model someday.
