From Octopus Eyes to Powerful Lenses
Nature, in its infinite variety, has inspired numerous inventions and technologies. Each volume in this new series tells a story of biomimicry, or more specifically, how scientists and inventors have tried to imitate something in nature in an effort to create better, stronger, safer tools and processes for everyday life. For example, Velcro resulted from one man's curiosity about barbs on a weed seed. And, a sonar-equipped cane for people who are blind grew from observations of bats. Books in this series show the concrete relationships between science and nature and daily life. All books include a glossary, bibliography, and index.
