Biomimetics

  1. 1. Na ture + Desig n t o w a rds a Bio -C iv iliza t io n Done By: Samarjit Dutta Department of Biomedical Engineering Netaji Subhash Engineering College
  2. 2. “ bios ~ life ” and “ mīmēsis ~ imitation ” The Wikipedia says “ Biomimetics or biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. ” “taking design ideas from nature” “Biologically inspired Technologies”
  3. 3. One of the early examples of biomimicry was the study of birds to enable human flight. Although never successful in creating a "flying machine", Leonardo da Vinci (1452– 1519) was a keen observer of the anatomy and flight of birds, and made numerous notes and sketches on his observations as well as sketches of "flying machines".
  4. 4. 3. Leonardo's Human-Powered Ornithopter 3 1 2 1. & 2. Mechanical Wing Devices
  5. 5. The Wright Brothers, who Succeeded in flying the first heavier-than-air aircraft in 1903, derived inspiration from observations of pigeons in flight.
  6. 6. Low temp ceramics Structural colors: Photonic Crystals Mimicking the arrangement of leaves Bio-Adhesion: Nano- velcro; Geckel glue
  7. 7. • Aircraft wing designand flight techniques inspired by birds and bats • Climbing robots, boots and tape mimicking geckos feet and their ability for adhesive reversal • Protein folding used to control material formation for self- assembled functional nanostructures • Mimicking the arrangement of leaves on a plant for better solar power collection • The light refracting properties of butterfly wings are harnessed to provide improved digital displays and everlasting colour
  8. 8. • FABRICATION • BIOMEDICINE • NANOWIRES & NANOTUBES • DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY
  9. 9. KINGFISHER BEAK BULLET TRAINS
  10. 10. PHYLLOTACTIC TOWERS
  11. 11. SNAIL-INSPIRED DESIGN
