We examined this idea broadly years ago, could the concept of Orgami be used to deliver certain forms of packaging? The concept here is very different, but with similar design inspiration: In IEEE Spectrum:
" ... Harvard University researchers have manufactured beautiful (and superbly functional) air-powered origami robotic actuators out of paper and elastic materials. The team of engineers and chemists built these “soft pneumatic actuators” by combining paper with a silicone elastomer called Ecoflex in a mold and casting a structure that contains a pneumatic network. The process is fast, easy, and inexpensive. When the pneumatic networks are inflated with an external source of air, the elastomer expands, creating an actuator.... "
