Earwig origami featured in National Geographic

Andres Arrieta's research was featured in National Geographic. He discovered that the earwig's wings use origami-like folds to expand to 10 times their size. This bistability allows its wings to expand with very little mechanical effort. At Herrick Labs, Andres is working to convert this bio-inspired origami into products that are useful to humans.

Purdue and Whirlpool Corporation's ReNEWW House

Is it possible to convert a 1920's bungalow into a 21st-century smart home with net zero water and energy usage? That's the goal of Purdue University's RENEWW House, in conjunction with Whirlpool Corporation.

Purdue researchers have added solar panels for heat and electricity, filtered rainwater basins for most water usage, a biowall of plants to filter the air, energy-efficient appliances, and sensors to monitor every drop of water and energy usage.
