Origami-inspired device helps marine biologists study octopuses and jellyfish: Folding polyhedron sampler enables easy capture and release of delicate underwater organisms

Scientists have tried to find the safest and most effective ways to explore marine life in the oceanic water, the largest and least explored environment on Earth, for years. Each time, they were faced with the same challenge: How to capture delicate or gelatinous pelagic animals -- like jellyfish, squid, and octopuses -- without harming them? An origami-inspired device may change that.
