Biomimicry – 8 Useful Technologies Inspired by Nature

Another great video from the Sci Show explaining eight different nature inspired technologies.

  1. mosquito – saw technology for nearly painless blood drawing.
  2. mussel – waterproof glue for various applications from making plywood to human skin cuts.
  3. shark skin – tiny bumps have lead to cleaner, safer surfaces and high tech swim suits. The bumps make it difficult for bacteria to get a grip.
  4. hump back whales – tubercles on the leading edge of their flippers have led to more efficient wind turbine blades.
  5. fish schools – wind turbine placement
  6. coral – earth-friendly concrete
  7. water bears | jericho rose | brewer’s yeast – all use trehalose to prevent drying out and provides protection from heat could be used for vaccine preservation
  8. burdock sticky burrs – velcro – hook and loop fasteners
