Bio-Mimicry

Learn how engineering inspired by nature, where much ink has not been spilled about these innovations elsewhere.

  • FOG – BASKING BEETLE
    Africa’s Namib Desert is one of the driest habitats present on planet earth. However, in this environ the fog-basking beetle managed to survive and able to harvest water from thin air. Learn how humans got inspired and implemented this bio-mimicry.
  • SEAHORSE TAIL MIMICKED ROBOTIC ARM
    Robotic arm – when science is facing a problem nature helps to solve it. The Robotic arm is a fascinating mimicry, from the beautiful Seahorse. This mimicry improved all the mechanical characteristics of the arm by a fascinating amount. This mimicry has revolutionized the robotic world and gave the automation processes a new aid .
  • TERMITE MOUND – EASTGATE CENTRE – CACTUS
    In 1996, the building named EASTGATE CENTRE got opened in Harare, Zimbabwe. The building has 5600sqm of retail space and 26000sqm of office space along with 450 cars parking area. It looks like a mundane building, but here comes the plot twist the building has no AIR-CONDITIONING. YES, it is a self-cooling building!! This Architecture is the Bio-mimicry of a termite mound and a cactus.
  • SHINKANSEN 500
    SHINKANSEN 500 is one of Japan’s high-speed trains, which can travel up to 320 Kmph. The design is made in hindsight of environmental issues. Learn why and how this sophisticated design is inspired by nature.
  • TUBERCLE TECHNOLOGY
    Have you ever thought, a whale’s flipper design would augment the efficiency of man-made creations? Well, it did happen, engineers are inspired by the flippers of the HUMPBACK whales which are responsible for the dexterity of the whale, and came up with the TUBERCLE TECHNOLOGY.
