Bioinspiration

Bioinspiration

Bioinspiration is observing a particular function performed with precision by a biologic system, and then attempting to create a synthetic system that performs the same function for technological applications. With inspiration from biology, the specific task can be achieved by a living system, for example, inspire scientists to develop a synthetic system that performs the equivalent function, even if the synthetic system uses a scheme quite different from that employed by the biological system. Nature provides examples of systems whose exceptional properties and performance might be replicated for all sorts of applications. The self-cleaning lotus leaf, the adhesive gecko’s foot, and the fracture-resistant mollusc shell have all fueled interest in smart biological materials.
