Advertisers love to talk about the art of engineering. But this week's guests on Sea Change Radio truly are fusing their high-tech research with art. By incorporating the principles of origami, the traditional Japanese art form of paper folding, with their work in the emerging field of paper battery technology, this Arizona State research team has come up with some exciting new ways to store energy.

These researchers believe that "origami electronics" may be an important new template for the production of things like stretchable electronics or even highly foldable and more efficient solar cells. Listen now as these three academics tell us how simple paper cranes may be the key to solving complex, real-world problems.
