Have animals inspired technology?
As we have spoken of this how techology helps in everyday life of pets, we may also mention this how animals inspired modern technology as well. There are in fact couple of animals that inspired scientists.
For example kingfisher’s inspired a bird-watching engineer at a Japanese rail company and then he solved problem with high speed trains. The problem was the noise, especially when it came to tunnels. But this engineer re-designed the nose to be long enough and pointy just like the kingfisher which helps the airwaves to be gradually released instead.
Another amazing example of animal inspired technology are geckos. These animals have in fact specially adapted feet that can stick to any kind of surfaces. There is a team of scientists that copied the geckos and created amazing gloves that are going to help climbers scale vertical walls.
