"My experiments for writtenimages.net – a generative book. All these creatures were generated by an algorithm controlled by number of parameters that can be randomized and animated. The look was inspired by amazing works of Ernst Haeckel."
In a sweeping review of the field of bio-inspired engineering and biomimicry in the Feb. 15 issue of the journal Science, two engineers at the University of California, San Diego, identify three characteristics of biological materials that they believe engineers would do well to emulate in man-made materials: light weight, toughness and strength.
"Jessica Rosenkrantz of Nervous System has recently posted a Flickr set documenting a test run of 3D printed forms that resemble oceanic organisms such sea anemone, coral and barnacles. The prints make use of bold colour palettes to accentuate the topologies of the shapes. The diffused hues combined with subdivided geometries, and sometimes employing strict symmetry, create some exuberant aquatic hyper-realities that wouldn’t seem out of place on a plate from Ernst Haeckle’s Art Forms in Nature."
Spiders are very agile, and some can even jump. They owe this capability to their hydraulically operated limbs. Researchers have now designed a mobile robot modeled on the same principle that moves spider legs. Created using a 3-D printing process, this lightweight can explore terrain that is beyond human reach.
An Italian engineer has gone from playing with sand to printing with it. Enrico Dini hopes to re-shape the world for the better by replicating natural objects with the D-Shape - one of the world's largest 3D printers.
"Unlike most aircraft, a bat’s wing is in constant motion when in flight. Researchers at Brown University are looking to this motion to influence the future of aircraft design.
To better understand how the bat’s wing moves, members of the Brown Swartz Lab have 3D printed a model of the lesser dog faced fruit bat’s wing and added a force transducer to its base. When placed inside a wind tunnel, the robot’s three servo motors control the model’s seven joints and the transducer records the aerodynamic forces acting on the wing."
"An ongoing series of large-scale bronze shells continues in production since 2011. The most recent edition can be seen at Quinn's solo exhibition The Littoral Zone at Institut Océanographique, Monaco until 15 October 2012."
