Be Amazed by… Gecko Skin - When you think of geckos, you probably picture a talking lizard pitching you car insurance . Moth Eyes and Solar Panels - When scientists at North Carolina University wanted to make thin solar panels more efficient, they had an eye on moth eyes. Velcro - If you spend much time hiking outside, you've probably come home covered in burdock burrs at some point. Canes Inspired by Bats - Bats are able to navigate by echolocation, emitting ultrasonic waves. Spider Webs - Spider webs in your home might inspire you to invent a new way of running from the room screaming, but they also inspired some scientists to make a super-strong adhesive. Lobsters and LEXID - Lobsters see by focusing on a small point. Birds and Bullet Trains - If you've ridden a bullet train, you may have noticed the loud noise it makes emerging from a tunnel—but not if you rode one of the new ones inspired by birds. Sugary Vaccines - A tardigrade may sound like something in an episode of Dr. Who, but it's actually a tiny, tough, eight-legged creature that lives in water. Termites - We tend to think of termites as tiny bugs that destroy houses, but on the contrary, they've actually inspired a process of building houses to be more energy efficient. Stenocara Beetle and Water Collection - You've probably never heard of the Stenocara Beetle, but its system of collecting water from fog could help us all have more drinking water in the future. Mussels and Bacteria Make Underwater Glue - If you need glue that can work underwater, or when wet, you might want to flex your mussels—no, not those muscles, but the kind served in seafood restaurants. Galapagos Shark and Protective Coating for Hospitals - When you think about sharks and hospitals, you probably think of someone going to the hospital after being bitten by a shark. Coral and CO2 - If you worry about your carbon footprint, you'll be happy to know some organisms in nature want to help us keep CO2 out of the air. Lotus and Self Cleaning Paint - You may have thought to yourself, “I wish I lived in a self-cleaning house.” Thanks to the lotus flower, you may get a chance one day. Whale Flippers - Whales are large, unwieldy creatures, but they manage to move around in water with surprising agility despite their size. A company called Whale Power discovered this was due to their flippers, which are studded with bumps called “tubercules” along their leading edge.
Nature is the oldest and smartest scientist on earth. I like the Gecko sticky feet, I like the moth no light reflection eyes, I like the termite building air conditioner, I like the Lotus self cleaning petals and I like the whale fast flippers.
Artificial neural networks! Its idea is 100% sure was got from nature. And you face with them everyday. Your youtube recommendations, annoying ads targeting, image searching, image filters, face recognition, etc works with ANN.
Been subscribed for a while now and this was by far one of my favorites of yours! Definitely like the idea of a follow-up to it!
That being said, I almost always enjoy your videos anyway so thanks for all of your work!
There's one or two more i think...
Scalar energy stickers and power savers (the one which just needs to be plug in on any outlet).
Both marketed as energy savers that would cut bills in half, pun intended.
Good video. Surprised you didn't mention biomimicry as a term. Also I believe the namibian beatle doesn't simply collect water on the bumps but it buries itself in the sand during the day so when it comes out at night,the temperature difference between his shell and the air is what causes the water drops to condense and form on it's back.
I find it interesting that people have no problem giving scientists credit for being intelligent enough to observe these features of nature and turning them into beneficial inventions, but if someone believes that there's a superior being who has the intelligence to design everything around us - that person is crazy.
Whenever I watch videos like this, it makes me appreciate my beliefs even more. These creations are just so efficient and well made, that's why we've copied them. If you see a random house on a deserted island, you wouldn't believe that it just happened to build itself there. Likewise, I find it hard to believe that we have this super efficient, well designed planet and universe that just "poofed" into existence.
Marin Community Foundation and Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy.
Overall, US-born Muslims make up the largest percentage at 34% of all Muslims in the Bay Area, followed by 14% born in Pakistan, 11% in Afghanistan, 10% in India, 3% in Egypt and 2% each in Iran, Jordan, Palestine and Yemen.
Silicon Valley Pakistani-American by the Numbers:
There are 35,000 Pakistani-born Muslims in San Francisco Bay Area, or 14% of the 250,000 Muslims who call the Bay Area home, according to the study. Bay Area Muslim community constitutes 3.5 percent of the area’s total population and is one of the highest concentrations of Muslims in the country.
As of 2013, South Asian Muslims, including Pakistanis, have the highest income levels, with nearly half (49%) of them having a household income above $100,000. In comparison, those groups with the lowest proportion of household incomes above $100,000 were Hispanic Muslims (15%), Afghans (10%), and African American Muslims (10%).
The Bay Area Muslim community is very diverse in terms of race and ethnicity:
South Asians (30%)
African Americans (9%)
Asian/Pacific Islanders (7%)
Based on the survey findings, the majority of Muslims live in the following three counties:
and Contra Costa (12%)
Thousands of Pakistan-born techies are working at Apple, Cisco, Google, Intel, Oracle and hundreds of other high-tech companies from small start-ups to large Fortune 500 corporations. Pakistani-Americans are contributing to what Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee describe as "The Second Machine Age" in a recent book with the same title.
