Optical microscope images of a colloidal capsule with an inhomogeneous shell, buckled under an external osmotic pressure; scale bar is 35 .micrometer (top). Numerically simulated shell similar to the experimental capsule; color reflects spatially varying shell thickness (bottom). Elapsed time increases from left to right. [Sujit S.
