Through billions of years of evolution, nature has produced remarkably elegant solutions to a whole range of real-world problems. An increasing number of engineers is turning towards nature for design inspiration, as the evolutionary adaptation of organisms is in many ways comparable to the design cycle used in engineering: changes in functionality are tested on their fitness and thereafter either reinforced or rejected.
