How often do you see something in the natural world and marvel at the design of it? The way a hummingbird can hover and maneuver is pretty amazing and I can imagine one day there might be aircraft that can mimic that ability (if such things don’t already exist somewhere in secret).
Turns out that nature has already inspired some pretty cool inventions.
There’s supposed to be a video from BBC here, but it isn’t showing up on my own computer… I hope it shows up on yours!
This article at BBC News covers a few of the inventions inspired by nature so far.
