There’s a bug on my computer!


I had an urge to fold a ‘bug’ after the various bug incidents at the office recently. This particular model is at least 13 years old, I found it at Joseph Wu’s excellent origami diagram repository. Kudos to Marc Vigo Anglada for creating such an amazing piece. It’s pretty life-like and relatively easy to fold. I folded it in about 2 hours but most of the time was in figuring out the diagram since it has a few ‘bugs’ (or I could have interpreted it the wrong way). Once this is done I tried another one and did it in about 30 mins. The hardest part is in folding the legs initially, which can be quite tedious. This model is folded from a single piece of A4 sized photocopy paper.

Here are some snapshots of the ‘bug’:

The underbelly of the bug.

The proof of its life-likeness was when I showed it to my wife and she glared at me. I think she liked the Kawasaki rose better :)
