Bio-Inspiration: Nature as Muse
For hundreds of years, scientists have been poaching design ideas from structures
in nature. Now, biologists and engineers at UC Berkeley are working together
to design a broad range of new products, such as life-saving milli-robots modeled
on the way cockroaches run and adhesives based on the amazing design of a geckos
foot. QUEST visits their labs to find out what's so special about these crawling
and scaling animals.
