Good vibrations: spider signal threads reveal remote sensing design secrets | University of Oxford

Good vibrations: spider signal threads reveal remote sensing design secrets | University of Oxford | Biomimétisme, Biomimicry, Bioinspired innovation | Scoop.it

When you look at a spider web in the garden, one thing is often noticeably absent: the spider. This may be because it is lurking away from the web in a 'retreat', where it can monitor web vibrations through a proxy known as a signal thread.

Weird Microscopic Animal Inspires New Kind of Glass

Weird Microscopic Animal Inspires New Kind of Glass | Biomimétisme, Biomimicry, Bioinspired innovation | Scoop.it

The tardigrade's ability to produce glasslike molecules under a wide range of temperatures — they can survive temperatures as high as 304 degrees Fahrenheit (151 degrees Celsius) and as low as minus 328 degrees F (minus 200 degrees C) — led the researchers to experiment with the creation of new glass materials under extreme conditions. And this, in turn, led to the development of a glass material that is almost as strange as the creature that inspired its discovery.

Teeth and seashells are tough and durable materials and are considered among the toughest that nature has to offer. Based on the super-strong properties, scientists have been looking at how these materials are structured in order to create tougher materials.

New research has uncovered the secret to the inner strength of the materials: they are composed of different layers within which numerous micro-platelets are joined together. These platelets are aligned in identical orientation within each layer.

IBM reconstitue un cerveau « numérique » de rongeur avec 48 puces neuromorphiques | Biomimétisme, Biomimicry, Bioinspired innovation | Scoop.it

Une équipe de chercheurs d'IBM est parvenue à interconnecter plusieurs puces bioinspirées regroupant au total 48 millions de neurones artificiels, soit l'équivalent du nombre de neurones que l'on retrouve dans le cerveau d'un rongeur. A terme, le géant informatique souhaiterait directement intégrer ces puces neuromorphiques dans les smartphones, montres connectées ou autres dispositifs portables. Objectif : faciliter le traitement des algorithmes de deep learning utilisés, entre autres, pour la reconnaissance vocale ou la reconnaissance de contenus dans une image.
