(next up: “Mr [Sam] Felton [of Harvard] and his colleagues expect to unveil another experimental origami device next week at an automation conference in Taiwan—a self-folding cube that is just five millimeters in length”)

My comment:
(a) “Inspired by origami, the Japanese art of paper folding, researchers have built a robot that can fold itself unaided and scurry away—a prototype of a flexible, self-assembling machine.”

Likely the “Japanese art” originated in China. See origami
