"Buckliball," an engineered buckling structure, advances folding materials
Inspired by a toy, the collapsible buckliball represents a new class of 3D, origami-like structures Playing with an expanding and collapsing toy (top row), researchers at Harvard and MIT were inspired to design a new type of folding structure. The result is a one-piece silicone sphere, dubbed a "buckliball" for its pressure-induced buckling behavior (bottom row).

Sugar high for bees
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. A field of flowers may seem innocuous - but for the birds and bees that depend on it for sustenance, that floral landscape can be a battlefield mined with predators and competitors. The more efficient a pollinator is in feeding, the less chance it has of becoming food itself. Now mathematicians at MIT have found that efficient feeding depends on how sugary a flower's nectar is, and whether an animal dips or sucks the nectar out.
