SAMI (Sydney university AAO MOS IFU) has the potential to revolutionise our understanding of galaxies, with spatially-resolved spectroscopy of large numbers of targets. It is the first on-sky application of innovative photonic imaging bundles called hexabundles, which will remove the aperture effects that have biased previous multi-fibre astronomical surveys. SAMI was installed at the AAT in July 2011 and is being commissioned. I will discuss the instrument design, present some early commissioning results on our first galaxy targets, and outline the SAMI galaxy survey science.
