It is no secret that there are plenty of delicate marine organisms found under water. While researchers would love to study them, they don’t want to cause any damage. The RAD Sampler is an origami-inspired device that folds into a container to capture delicate marine creatures.

The device was tested to a depth of 700m but should withstand the pressure at full ocean depth (11km). It relies on a single rotary motor to drive the folding motion of its five petals.
