Scientific Progress Is Spelled "Bio-Inspiration"

Need fundamental insights into physics and technology? Look no further than the living world.

Insects Worth Respecting

Most six-legged creatures are small and we give them little notice. Here are surprises that entomologists are discovering in some very special insects.

Applications from Nature

In this Biomimetics list, we start with the application, then tell you what organism inspired it.

Animal Superheroes

Here are some animals, some common and some little-known, whose abilities astonish scientists.

Four-Footed Snake?

The fossil "transitional form" is not what reporters are making it out to be.

Creatures Worth Knowing and Imitating

Studies of animals and cells reveal designs in nature we can appreciate and imitate.

Scientific Progress Needs Design, Not Darwin

Numerous papers advancing scientific knowledge rely on design principles, not evolutionary notions.

Horned Dinosaurs Had Better Teeth than Mammals

Triceratops and its buddies carried around fine sets of self-sharpening steak knives (to eat plants).

Gecko Gripper Picks Up Anything

The gecko gripper is just one of many exciting developments in the field of biomimetics: the imitation of nature's designs.

Biomimetics Still Trending Up

The imitation of nature's designs (biomimetics) is all the rage, and shows no sign of slowing down.

Whale Secrets

Whales possess some remarkable traits that are the envy of engineers, and the dismay of evolutionists.

Animal PhDs in Physics

Many animals and plants have mastered physics and chemistry. Engineers would do well to learn from them.

Biological Systems Provide Infinite Design Inspiration

It's not likely engineers and biologists will run out of inspiration from biology anytime soon. The source is infinite.

Wonders Under the Sea

Three ocean creatures have surprised scientists with new discoveries of previously-unknown capabilities.
