Tessellations and Fractals
Update: I was made aware of the fact that Ron Resch discovered this origami tessellation before Eric Gjerde. I have updated the list of designers accordingly.
This model somewhat reminds me of a hedgehog. It's basically a tessellation consisting of many small waterbomb bases.
Paper: 19.5cm square of stiff paper, 115gsm
Model: 11cm x 11cm x 1cm when pressed flat

yeah you're right! it does look like a hedgehog. by the way, the crease pattern can be found on the origami forum by Mark Leonard:

that's really cool! it's great how it's more 3d than just tesselaty.

Does it have the same
Does it have the same principles as the the traditional water bombs do?
(such as holding water for a sufficient time, in which allows it to be thrown against some one)

hi Sara will you please make a video on this model?

Would you make a video about how to make more waterbombs because i could see that there is more squares on this one than the one on the video you made.

No big difference
It's the same technique, just start with a grid that has more divisions.

would my creation be counted as a "tessellation"
by what i understand a tessellation
is an origami that can be repeated
know my origami doesnt look like a tessellation, but neither does the apple (that is why i asked)
well i am my able to make origami from a 32 and 64 (and hopefully a 16...)
would that count my origami as a tessellation?

Tessellation or not
This is totally taken out of context. Which model are you speaking of? :)
In any case, the apple by Shuzo Fujimoto isn't really a tessellation, but it's a tessellation-style apple. As to the exat definition of tessellations - you may also say that the clover folding and the hydrangea aren't tessellations. But does it *really* matter what the exact definition is? I'd say just enjoy folding, and don't worry too much about how to define the different areas of origami - there will always be an overlap and gray areas. :)

I know this is probably going
I know this is probably going to sound dumb,but do you know if there is such a thing called a waterbomb?Also,why is the base called a watebomb in the first place?I'm just curious is all.

Waterbomb base, waterbomb model
There's a waterbomb model, which you can actually fill with water and throw. The waterbomb base is how you start the waterbomb model. As with most bases, they're named after a well-known model that starts with that base. Hope this clarifies it.
Check http://dev.origami.c... for diagrams for the full waterbomb model.
