#bioneers #biomimicry #ted VIDEO: Janine Benyus: Biomimicry's surprising lessons from nature's engineers. In this inspiring talk about recent developments in biomimicry, Janine Benyus provides heartening examples of ways in which nature is already influencing the products and systems we build.
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.
Achieving Sustainability with Design Thinking: Janine Benyus on Biomimicry. Janine Benyus urges us to look to nature in our designs in the way we once did using biomimicry. She highlights the importance of understanding our analogues to nature through biological and biochemical systems that are already in place. Only by appreciating the intelligence of ecosystems and organisms can we apply the same genius to our own fabrications.
