❓ What is biomimicry ?
Science and engineering have consistently looked to nature to improve upon new or existing technology. Biomimicry has helped shape and create some of your favorite everyday products and even services.
This growing science focuses on what humanity can learn from the world, the nature.
Engineers are learning quite a lot about efficient solutions for aircraft design that nature has spent millions of years refining. Worlds greatest aircraft manufacturers such as Boeing, Airbus as well as NASA have found an inexpensive way to cut airline fuel bills by borrowing a trick from the world’s greatest long-distance aviators: migratory birds. For instance, by lining up cruising aircraft in a V-shaped formation favored by Canada geese, carriers would be able to produce a leap in efficiency without investing in structural makeovers or futuristic technology. The idea is to link the flying convoys safely using navigation and collision-avoidance tools that already are widely installed in cockpits. The habits and anatomy of birds are currently being used by boffins at Airbus to develop quieter and more fuel efficient planes. The aviation giant, which makes and designs wings in Broughton, Flintshire, and Filton, Gloucestershire, employs Professor Norman Wood to unlock the mysteries of the natural world to help gain a commercial advantage.
It is using so-called ‘biomimicry’ in the design of intelligent wings that react automatically to the environment, just as an eagle’s or a peregrine falcon’s do.
The place where we start or end our journey. The place where we part and meet our loved ones. The place where we say our "Hello" and "Goodbye". Or maybe just "See you again"
