Robby is an origami artist, teacher, and coder currently working on a creative coding library for origami design. The physical constraints of origami lend nicely to algorithms employed in its design space, resulting in a budding landscape of origami design software. Robby's is unique in having been written in Javascript, able to run on the web and be incorporated among all the open-source Javascript libraries.
