Biomimetics - A Review
Bio: meaning life and mimesis meaning imitation are derived from Greek. Biomimetics is the field of scientific endeavor which attempts to design system and synthesize materials through biomimicry. Itís the concept of taking ideas from nature and implementing them in another technology such as engineering design computing etc. The subject matter of biomimetics is known by several names bionics, biognosis etc .

The concept is very old but the implementation is gathering momentum only recently because the science base can cope with the advanced techniques and our civilization is in ever increasing need of sympathetic technology.

Biomimectics is an emerging inter disciplinary field that combines information from the study of biological structures and their function with physics mathematics chemistry and engineering in the development of principles that are important for the generation of novel synthetic materials and organs.
