Related to the article I just shared; another good read

Sometimes simplicity is the mother of invention if you look at the water cycle as used
by mother earth it is definitely a giant filtration system waiting to mimicked by

hahaha! good quote. Also, I'll be sure to keep my kidneys in place :)

Well, Lance, if you look closely, Nature has 'solved' many of our Engineering problems even before we knew what the problem was.

Look at a tree, and you'll see the Structural Engineering to make a strong tower, as well as the Photonic and/or Chemical Engineering (depending on your background) to harvest and store energy. You want to make a filter to separate trace elements at the molecular level? Look at your own kidneys. (Well, not YOUR own kidneys, it might not be healthy to just rip them out for study, but you get the idea.)

Or to put it more succinctly, let me phrase it in the form of a motivational poster caption:

Stealing Nature's patents for the past 6000+ years.

I am always fascinated at how we as a people continue to learn from the biosphere that surrounds us. Who knew that we would gain robotic ideas from caterpillars? Caterpillar's Crawl May Hold Clues To Future Robotics

Well, not forgeting the issue with Toyota Automotive breaks what was the solution
to this frictional and thermal problem which effected the microcontroller recieving
bad feedback in the closed feedback scheme and do you think breaking could hold a common sense solution looking back at reverse engineering and past technolgy?

I'm not sure if this technically is mechatronics, but it was created in a robotics lab at Carnegie Mellon University. Regardless, it's pretty cool!

This is so cool. I agree with Lance, it does have possibilities. I hope they keep exploring this area.
