Nature Got There First - Inventions Inspired by Nature

PUB1588

Limited Supply.

1995.  Phil Gates.  Observe how ducks keep themselves warm and dry, and the inspiration for warm bedcloths and outerware becomes apparent.  Burrs became Velcro®, squid proved a working example for jet engines, and teeth were the prototype for chisels.  The lively text explores the parallels between natural solutions and man-made inventions.  80 pages, hard cover, full color.
