Marine Muse: 12 More Designs #038; Inventions

Who have thought that a with a rectangular body inspire a car, that in algae could help us drug-resistant bacteria, or that of fish could hold the key to more efficient wind The sea is a source of endless inspiration for architecture and all kinds of inventions robotics to biomedical breakthroughs.  are 12 (more! ) examples of oceanic

For their 2005 Bionic Car Mercedez-Benz looked to the boxfish: a tropical fish that’s yet streamlined, aerodynamic and highly “Its rectangular anatomy is identical to the cross-section of a car body,” Daimler, which had a scientific analyze the fish’s anatomy its impact-resistant, armor-plated outer which is also the secret to its Combining light weight and an shape with a direct-injection engine, Daimler achieved an of 70 miles per gallon.

When necessary to perform dangerous underwater – like searching for – robots are an ideal option. And designing them for optimal biomimicry is the way to go, giving them precise movements and greater using less fuel. University’s Department of Naval and Ocean Engineering created ‘Robot Squid ‘ using properties of both squid and marine animals like using rubber panels on the to ‘fly’ through the water. design

enables the robot to stay in even in unstable currents.

Certain numbers and patterns to dominate the geometry of the universe, the shape of the nautilus shell is known as the Golden Mean Found countless times in this spiral follows the Ratio (Phi) or Fibonacci in its rate of expansion, a ratio not only provides visual but structural strength as well. up into any spiral staircase, and see an echo of that seashell – it’s no accident!

The shape and texture of sharp has already been used to extremely aerodynamic swimsuits for teams, and now it could be incorporated a paint to reduce drag on ships and wind turbines. The of a shark’s scales are spaced in a way that they prevent and other sea life from Researchers at Fraunhofer created a that, when applied a special stencil, mimics effect, potentially saving a lot of fuel.

Mimicking the way that fish in schools could change the of wind turbines altogether, from tall vertical to vertical-axis turbines with placed in a “staircase” pattern could allow for much compact wind farms. believes that his design help wind farms up to 10 times more energy.
