oribotWe're not sure which is more intriguing: the fact that Australian artist Matt Gardiner has created a group of origami-folding robots, dubbed oribots, or the fact that he's not the first to do so. Just months after the first origami-folding robot was introduced at Carnegie Mellon University, Gardiner has unveiled his striking group of robotic paper flowers that literally build and unbuild themselves.
