    For several years from 2012 onward, I worked with researchers at the Compliant Mechanisms Laboratory at Brigham Young University, developing origami-based and origami-inspired mechanisms. This video shows some of our work, include a concept for a NASA solar array based on the “flasher” concept developed by Chris Palmer, Jeremy Shafer, David Huffman, Simon Guest, and others.
