Biomimicry is a hot topic in the technology realm. Energy, agriculture, manufacturing, to medicine and everywhere in between, biomimicry can be applied to processes and innovation to make technology efficient and friendly to the environment.
The Biomimicry Institute defines the term as “Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies.” The goal here is to create sustainable and adaptable technologies that are based on tried and true natural designs.
Man seems to be messing up a lot lately. Perhaps it may be time for man to take a lesson or two from evolution. Basically, nature has pretty much solved most design issues on it’s own… man should take a humble approach and go with what already works. This approach may help evade impending disaster.
