Origami in your car. That’s the way the airbag folds! http://eng.origami-kids.com/origami-news/origami-in-your-car-airbag-folds.htm
The integration of origami, art, and technology offers unique opportunities to create products important to society. Origami is particularly well-suited for applications such as automobile airbags because it can be very compact, expand to a large size, and it enables folded patterns to be packed into unique shapes. This flexibility in packing into different shapes is increasingly important for automobile designers. This paper describes the design, testing, and manufacture of two origami patterns for packing airbags into cylindrical spaces, and shows that when folding airbags with origami patterns, the pattern and the packing method both influence how the airbag deploys.
