In 2006 Hungarian mathematicians Gábor Domokos and Péter L. Várkonyi proved the possibility of “a convex three-dimensional homogeneous body which, when resting on a flat surface, has just one stable and one unstable point of equilibrium.” They named such forms Gömböc, after a sweet Hungarian dumpling. Gömböc are self-righting: they will roll as if possessed before coming to rest on one precise point.
