http://www.ted.com Janine Benyus has a message for inventors: When solving a design problem, look to nature first. There you'll find inspired designs for making things waterproof, aerodynamic, solar-powered and more. Here she reveals dozens of new products that take their cue from nature with spectacular results... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_GFq12w5WU
WATCH: BIO-INSPIRATION: NATURE AS MUSE - KQED QUEST - For hundreds of years, scientists have been poaching design ideas from structures in nature. Now, biologists and engineers at UC Berkeley are working together to design a broad range of new products, such as life-saving milli-robots modeled on the way cockroaches run and adhesives based on the amazing design of a geckos foot .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnBkbaFsZOY

Biomimicry is gaining widespread recognition for its interdisciplinary approach to innovation.
By bringing biologists to the design table, biomimicry offers solutions for increasing sustainability of products, processes, and systems. A new UC Berkeley course, How Would Nature Do That?
