Bionics And Evolution-Technique
I found an interesting news upon Ingo Rechenberg work and his team at theTechnical University Berlin. The news reports how Rechenberg is applying the "research" already done by the nature to solve real world problems. Among those nature "technology" we have the lotus effect, the gecko effect, the analysis of bird flight to build safer airplane wings, the sand skink effect, and etc.
Take a moment and read all those nice informations upon Rechenberg's work! :)
