Pt the Tokyo ICA meeting Koryo Miura and Masamori Sakamaki from Tokyo University's Institute of Space and Aeronautical Science demonstrated an application, of space science, combined with a little Origami, which transforms the ergonomics of map folding.

Recent Awards and Recognitions Custom Twitter Backgrounds A Custom Twitter Background can make a real impression and enhance your brand – but how do you make one?
