Thousands of “hacked” silkworms build a dome at MIT

The above silk dome was built by thousands of silkworms, but collecting silkworms and trying to get them to do your bidding won’t work in quite the same way. Scientists at MIT “hacked”, or coerced the silkworms using light heat and a very light, basic structure to get them to create this amazing work of art.
