More documentation coming soon - I'm preparing a paper about the simulation methods used here, I will post it once its ready.

This app allows you to simulate how any origami crease pattern will fold. It may look a little different
from what you typically think of as "origami" - rather than folding paper in a set of sequential steps,

<b>What's Next:</b> (As of 9/8/17) I'm happy with the performance of the web app, but I'm working on some
optimizations so that the simulation + rendering is more performant in VR. Some of these changes
may break things that were previously working in the app, please let me know if you see any bugs.<br/>
