Biomimetics is the evolving science of looking to nature for answers to modern problems, often in unexpected ways. Investigates how flies improve search and rescue; termite feces helps builders; pine cones inspire new-age apparel and sharks Olympic swimsuits; nanotechnology mimics moths; Arctic poppies influence eco-friendly architecture; cockroaches inspire space engineers; fish become cars and airplanes take the shape of birds
