Mens Et Manus: How To Fold The MIT Logo In Origami In Three Easy Steps

Totally off topic post... Amazing paper folding video from Brian Chan of MIT, showing how to fold the MIT school seal in "three easy steps". Errr... Brian's three easy steps take 10 hours, but no worries! The seal and the motto, Mens Et Manus, means "mind and hand", describing how engineering is both theoretical and a hands-on discipline. I found this motto really captured the essence of the place during my years at the Institute. Here's the video. That's a single piece of paper, no cuts.
My favorite quote:
There are several reasons why you might like to use origami to make your sculpture. Number one: You might not have scissors.
Kudos, Brian!
