    NASA engineers use origami as inspiration when they fold up solar panels for their trip to space. Shown here: the Miura fold. Once a piece of paper (or solar array) is all folded up, it can be completely unfolded in one smooth motion. You can read more about origami in space here, and learn how to do the Miura fold in this video:

    Billboard Homes for the Homeless

    Project Gregory is a non profit effort that converts existing billboard structures into affordable housing units. Maintenance costs, skills, and resources are covered through funds raised by the advert space and partner reciprocity.The Republic of Slovakian project utilises the electricity used to keep the billboard lit at night to power the home’s interior.

    This project is open source and Project Gregory encourages all cities in all countries to construct new, innovative designs and involve as  many companies as possible to help make a difference.

    Second time we’ve featured this, but it’s such an interesting idea. This apartment looks better than mine!
