Another Origami Handbag

Manhole Cover Bag
The “manhole bag,” another of Ms. Tsukioka’s inventions, is a purse that can hide your valuables by unfolding to look like a round sewer cover. These ideas might strike foreigners as far-fetched,” Ms. Tsukioka said, “but in Japan, they can become reality.”

From today’s NYT.

An interesting article, but it doesn’t mention that the Talking Heads were doing urban camouflage years ago. That’s the trouble with urban camouflage — no one can see you doing it.
