There’s a reason why The Four Hour Work Week remained on the New York Times Best Seller list for so long. Home : Nature Webfeeds. Biomimetic links. Here is a list of biomimetic (or bionic) relevant links with a short description of each link.
The Biomimetics email list Here you can join the biomimetic email list or look in the archives. The list acts as a serious discussion venue for biomimetic researchers and other interested. The BIONIS network BIONIS is short for The Biomimetics Network for Industrial Sustainability and is a loose organisation of researchers and companies working within the field of biomimetic.
BIONIS is based in the UK, but open for all nationalities. The BIOKON network The BIOKON (Bionik-Kompetenz-Netz) network is a loose organisation of German research groups (but it is also open for non Germans) working within the field of biomimetics. Bionics2Space portal The European Space Agency's site on biomimetics and how it can be applied to space exploration and space research. Was ist Bionik. Faszination Bionik Der menschliche Schöpfergeist kann verschiedene Erfindungen machen (...), doch nie wird ihm eine gelingen, die schöner, ökonomischer und geradliniger wäre als die der Natur, denn in ihren Erfindungen fehlt nichts, und nichts ist zu viel.
Leonardo da Vinci, Künstler und Universalgelehrter. Search: eyes. RESULTS 1-10 of 325 Extra eyes direct light: spookfish The eyes of the six-eyed spookfish direct additional light to the principal eyes for improved deep-sea vision via a third pair of accessory 'eyes.' Tags: global health, barreleye, photosensitivity, Bathylychnops exilis Category: Strategies Eyes give 360˚ vision: chameleon The eyes of chameleons allow 360˚ vision because they are mounted on conical turrets that can move independently of each other.
Tags: Chamaeleonidae Category: Strategies Multiple eyes provide excellent vision: jumping spider The eight eyes of a jumping spider provide it with excellent vision via two principal eyes used for stereoscopic vision and the other six for a panoramic view around the spider. Self-Cleaning Materials: Lotus Leaf-Inspired Nanotechnology: Scientific American. Wilhelm Barthlott of the University of Bonn in Germany, discoverer and developer of the “lotus effect,” has a vision of a self-cleaning Manhattan, where a little rain washes the windows and walls of skyscrapers as clean as the immaculate lotus.
Elsewhere, he sees tents and marquees using new textiles that stay equally spotless with no intervention from a human cleaner. He is not the only one with his sights set on a future populated with objects that rarely if ever need washing: in Japan, technologists are developing self-deodorizing and disinfectant surfaces for bathrooms and hospitals. Michael Rubner and Robert Cohen of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology envisage similar technologies keeping bathroom mirrors unfogged and controlling microfluidic “labs on a chip” (in which fluids move through microscopic pathways).

Water droplets on taro leaf with lotus effect (upper), and taro leaf surface magnified (0–1 is one millimetre span) showing a number of small protrusions (lower). Computer graphic of a lotus leaf surface. A water drop on a lotus surface showing contact angles of approximately 147°. The lotus effect refers to the very high water repellence (superhydrophobicity) resulting in self-cleaning properties, as exhibited by the leaves of the lotus flower (Nelumbo). Dirt particles are picked up by water droplets due to a complex micro- and nanoscopic architecture on the surface, which minimizes the droplet's adhesion to said surface.
