Impulse vs Origami: What are the differences?

Impulse: Dynamic JS Animations for the Mobile Web. Create animations that flow naturally from the user's movements. Rather than animating properties for a set amount of time, impulse takes a start position, end position, and velocity; Origami: A free design prototyping toolkit for Quartz Composer. Origami is a free toolkit for Quartz Composer—created by the Facebook Design team—that makes interactive design prototyping easy and doesn’t require programming.
