Shark skin like swinging suit
Speedo's Fastskin line (including the banned-as-of-2009 LZR suit) of high-tech, high-performance swimsuits were inspired by the skin of a shark--shark skin's sandpaper-like texture is thought to reduce drag, hence its usefulness in swimming gear. But an ichthyologist at Harvard performed a study and found that Fastskin is "nothing like shark skin at all," and that its surface properties do not reduce drag one bit.
Shark skin, as well as the skin of related fish like rays and chimaeras, is covered with dermal denticles, almost like little teeth. George Lauder, a professor of ichthyology at Harvard, performed experiments to analyze the purpose of these dermal denticles, and tested the Speedo suits as well, to see how similar they are.
it was banned because:
it created un unauthorized advantage for those swimmers who wore these suit.

It was invented by scientists for speedo sports company in 2008.
sharkskin is made up of countless overlapping scales called dermal denticles (or "little skin teeth"). The denticles have grooves running down their length in alignment with water flow. These grooves disrupt the formation of eddies, or turbulent swirls of slower water, making the water pass by faster. The rough shape also discourages parasitic growth such as algae and barnacles.
