Interesting Origami - Mooser's Train

You may have seen intricate origami including cranes, insects, and other animals and figures. These are the most popular ones.

Today, I just learned about the OrigamiUSA convention held annually and about the great origami achievement known as Mooser's Train. Emmanuel Mooser created a three-car model locomotive from a single sheet of paper. It was folded with a method known as the box pleat, which has been used in many other real-world applications, such as air bags and transforming robots.

Mooser's Train just looks awesome. And after seeing it, possibilities are opened for even more intricate designs made with a single sheet of paper.
