Practical Origami

This has the potential to radically optimize my life. Now if I could get a private demonstration...

The link comes from the Paris Perl Mongers (French), coincidentally my biggest source of clothing tops.

    Ha, Japanese are sometimes quite good at making trivial things big, serious, and... funny.
    No offensive at all... I am impressed by their creativity thought on chindogu - the art of the useless idea. Use a back scratcher's T-shirt to point out where the itch is at your back? or a subway snoozer's chin stand to keep you snoozing but still standing in a crowded subway?
    Kenji Kawakami's 101 Unuseless Japanese Inventions contains loads of such silly ideas.

    Right... Those crazy Japanese...
    But, wait... Here are the Chinese! They rigorously test the technique on different kinds of clothes, apparently find it doesn't work for pants, and conclude it works twice as fast on shirts.
    What I miss are the lovely hand motions of the Japanese demonstrator.

    Actually, this vedio clip is from a Taiwan cable TV problem, 生活智慧王 (Chinese only; Translation: Wiser of Life). They even have these ideas published, 4 books already (also Chinese only...)

    It looks so beautiful and efficient. Far superior to my pathetic Western shirt folding style. But does it work for long-sleeved shirts?

    After further exploration of the shirt folding issue, I have come to the conclusion that the conventional method is best. It may take a few seconds more to do, but efficiency in stacking the folded shirts is far greater. Also the conventionally folded shirt comes unfolded less easily, thus ensuring tidiness in the drawer for a significantly longer period of time.

    I'm so glad that's your conclusion. I was unable to reproduce the method. Partly because I don't have that much clear space anywhere in my apartment. Actually, my current technique is to pile a bunch of T-shirts, then fold *the pile*. Come to think of it, that's by far the fastest method. Franco-Germano-Yankee ingenuity wins again!
