Biomimicry version 2.0? The dawn of Bio-Mecha and a Biomechanical Revolution
So far we have only went into a monologue with nature but soon we may begin a dialogue. When our machines learn to speak the language of biology and biology understands the commands or our hybrid machines. A conversation may emerge between the two and that may spark a more efficient and more beneficial relationship for both the ecosystem, us humans and the planet as a whole.
The essence is that so far ideas taken from nature are adapted into machines but with time they can be evolved further and merged back with biology to create the Bio-Mecha - and the question is whether the field of Biomimetics is giving birth to a Biomechanical Revolution?
How do you see this merger take place and which industries will first adopt and employ this concept? And do you know of any Bio-Mecha ideas or projects already in place?
I investigated a German and international company Festo who are still experimenting with Biomimicry in creating breakthrough mechanical and robotic solutions, but will companies like this incorporate living organic tissues into their machines in the future?
Any relating comments to this concept are welcome and much appreciated.
