Form and Function and Biomimicry and Sustainability!

 

Link to the website of the company that makes the shark's tail electrical generator

Another great biomimicry project

 

This file holds the images and links we looked at in class

We explored how scientists, engineers, architects, artists..... use forms developed in nature and apply them to a different function. 

Was Leonardo Da Vinci inspired by plant design when he drew helicopters and parachutes?

We talked about how the discover of Velcro was inspired by nature.

The Nautilus, whose form was an inspiration for submarines, has many special structures that allow it to survive in its' habitat.  However it is being threatened because it is being fished in a non-sustainable way
