2. History of Biomimicry
Origin of Biomimicry
Bio (life) + Mimesis (imitate)
“Biomimetics” by Otto Schmitt
The transfer of ideas from biology to technology
“Biomimicry” by Janine Benyus
Studies nature's models
Imitates/Takes inspiration from these designs
Processes to solve human problems
Model, Measure, and Mentor
2. History of Biomimicry
ㄸEarly Invention of Biomimicry
Leonardo da Vinci
“Flying Machine”
Bats and birds
Wright Brothers
“Airplane”
Pigeons
Sustainable
buildings
from termites
Discovering chemical compounds of medicinal value from chimpanzees
Faster, quieter, more efficient Shinkansen Bullet Train from kingfishers
