Toutes les idées sont dans la nature !


Animals and plants are an inexhaustible source of inspiration for those who know how to observe them. This science is called biomimicry: it aims to imitate nature. It is at the origin of fascinating inventions...

In this book are declined by themes (transport, architecture/habitat, medicine, robotics, etc.) the inventions born from these observations. About fifty astonishing and little-known examples are evoked: the lotus inspired self-cleaning paints and windows; moths, a very effective bomb detector; termites, natural air conditioning; mosquitoes, a painless needle; ants, geolocation applications... Sometimes revolutionary advances and changes, non-polluting technologies, efficient renewable energies. Each invention is explained and related to the animal or plant species concerned, accompanied by a text describing the "extraordinary" feature copied by the biomimetic engineers.
