The emmy-award-winning series, explores "biomimetics" - the science of looking to nature for answers to design problems in our modern world. Most animals, and even a few plants, move. They swim, walk, run or fly in a wide range of ways, this TV series looks at how designers of planes, cars and robots have found inspiration in nature. Yet biomimetics is not just about copying nature, it's about understanding the principles behind nature's success and applying those in new and surprising ways. So exploring the world of cars and planes also gives us some startling new insights into nature as well. Find out why sharks can swim so fast, how flies and geckos can climb smooth glass and how vultures can help the next generation of airliners. Meet robot cockroaches that may look like something from science fiction movie, but might be the forerunners of the latest all terrain vehicles.
