Making efficient shapes with bubbles – The Bubbleologist

Watch more with these video collections:

From a sphere, to a tetrahedron, to a cube, to a dodecahedron, bubbles can build a variety of shapes as they join together. The geometry changes as the bubbles share walls to save their soapy material, creating new shapes inside the morphing spheres. 

In this clip from the BBC‘s The Code, bubbleologist Tom Noddy demonstrates nature’s quest for efficiency to Marcus du Sautoy as more and more bubbles come together.
