Species are continuously evolving and are learning to devise innovative solutions, so, humans have begun to use that to their advantage.
RS Components have researched all of the new tech inspired by nature and collated it all in one place to make your life easier – also it’s handy to see all of the inventions and where the inspiration has originated from. Take a look at the futuristic-looking, innovatively-designed and creative inventions in the infographic below.
Here’s an overview of the tech-inspired nature:
Wing solutions designed using owl feathers
Researchers have formulated a mathematical solution that could help minimize noise, maximise aerodynamics in the design of porous airfoils (2D wings) to improve wind turbines and air vehicles.
Fruit fly brains inform search engines of the future.
Salk and University of California San Diego scientists have discovered that the fruit fly brain has an elegant and efficient method of performing similarity searches. The fruit fly’s brain could inform and help design computer algorithms of the future.
Bee’s hive mind grid
Bees living in a hive instinctively know what jobs need doing and they get done. regen Energy in the US adapted this ‘swarm logic’ to improve the efficiency of energy grids. Instead of using a central system to redirect power loads, the company uses wireless local controllers to direct power more efficiently.
