Discover some 30 natural specimens and technological objects that share common principles, and play with interactive displays highlighting these similarities. Did you know that the PWC hydrojet was inspired by the squid’s propulsion system? that smart cars use a detection system similar to the one locusts use? that there is an ultra‑resistant type of glass that was inspired by shells? A dozen examples illustrate the principles of biomimicry. Get inspired, and you too can help improve future technology.
