The Art Of MovementStreaming Video - 2014
The invention of the airplane was only a first step. Engineers enviously look at the sky and marvel at the elegance of their natural role models. Other researchers hope to develop amphibious spider vehicles or actuators that work like fish fins. Numerous examples of efficient locomotion can be found in nature. And many of these sustainable ideas are still unexploited. There is an enormous, still neglected potential. The first episode gives an introduction into the field of the new science of biomimicry. How can this new discipline help us overcome our limits? What can we learn from nature beyond that?
