What is biomimicry?
Besides something that makes you sound ridiculously smart at dinner parties, biomimicry is any human made process, substance, device or system that imitates nature.
That's the definition, at least. What biomimicry is, is very cool.
It's when a jackhammer is made to work like a woodpecker's head.
It's when something like sharkskin coats the underside of Navy ships to keep them barnacle-free.
Theses stories, and many more, are told in full in our brand new biomimicry course to help you understand how to get inspiration from nature.
Biomimicry is the study of nature in all its glorious genius, to give us solutions to technical problems.
Sometimes it goes by different names, like Biomimesis, Biomimetic design, or Nature inspired design, but they all mean the same thing - using nature's principles to make better things.
Plus, I wasn't kidding about making you sound smart at dinner parties - all of our courses offer interesting stories with which to pepper your chit-chat, but Biomimicry is on another level.
While making the course, we honestly couldn't stop ourselves from dropping some fascinating biomimicry tidbit into every conversation, every day, in every social circle.
So look out for Biomimicry, coming at you in the very near future!
