Material folding lends itself to a number of applications from very sophisticated (aerospace) to the ordinary such as packaging materials. Kraft paper cores based on the folding techniques could yield a superior product to corrugated cardboard. Multi-layer blocks made from recyclable materials could replace Styrofoam for use in space filling and shock absorbing. For aerospace using aluminum or composite materials, the folded structures could improve upon the existing honeycomb cores, which are used throughout the airplane in the floors, luggage compartments, and wings. For the transportation industry, aluminum or steel folded tessellations in flat laminated panels could be used for high strength but lightweight truck beds. Folded materials could be specifically designed for automobile floors to give a resilient strength to the frame while also serving to dampen the overall vibrations of the automobile. The lightweight strength and energy absorbing properties are also suited for bumpers, hoods, and crash protecting car doors. On highways, new crash barriers may be possible because of their low cost and high-energy absorption.
