Description


What do animals have to do with inventions?

Welcome to the world of bioinspiration Inventors observe and imitate strategies and adaptations that animals use in the natural world to find inspiration for new creations.

Sometimes two animal species face a similar challenge and come up with two very different ways for dealing with it. For instance, both sharks and pangolins have special skin that protects them from harm. Shark skin inspired a type of armor for boats, and pangolins inspired the design of a helmet for humans. Wild Inventions introduces six pairs of animals and the inventions they inspired. It gives readers a peek at the creative process involved in designing new inventions to help people stay safe, live more comfortably, and go places and do things that weren't previously possible.
