Biomimicry, from the Greek words bios (life) and mimesis (imitation), is a recent discipline that strives to solve problems by imitating designs and processes from nature. Discover how 3.8 billion years of "research & development" is inspiring engineers, scientists, architects and others to develop everything from gecko-like adhesive tape to "echolocating" canes for the blind. Presented by naturalist Richard Aaron.
This program was originally scheduled for June 12.
