But American physicist and master origami artist Robert Lang will insist that origami is more than it seems -- and Lang's own intricate, folded paper creations, many of them realistic-looking facsimiles of nature -- demonstrate that origami principles are now influencing mathematics, architecture, design and engineered in an unprecedented way. Watch him explain: Lang has had an aptitude for math since he was a child.
