lexus has unveiled a full-size, drivable "origami car", crafted out of precision-cut cardboard.
Lexus collaborated with Laser Cut Works and Scales and Models, a South London design company, to create the car. The car's cardboard body, which is mounted to a steel and aluminum frame, boasts fully functioning doors, wheels and headlights, and can be driven thanks to an electric motor. To produce the replica inspired by origami, the car was divided into a series of parts and then digitally rendered into 10mm thick slices.
