Biomimetics – using TRIZ to copy natures innovation

Now here is a great way to spice up your formula for innovation – Biomimetics
– the abstraction of good ideas from nature. Even better is Matt’s idea
of cloning mechanisms from nature, rather than copying the mechanical
engineering principles. (remember my post about cloning spider for a
loudspeaker).

An important technique to link the learnings from bioligy with the
tinkerings of mechanical engineers is the TRIZ database. You can read
about that from my delicious tags and actually query a database from
bath university here.

    Gee those Geckos feet are amazing. How do we change political thinking to respect nature not exploit it, – perhaps Biomimetics will help more people to see the ingenious application of nature and help them change their priorities.CheersAnthony
