Everywhere they look in the biological world, scientists and engineers are finding marvelous designs that inspire new technology. In fact, this conscious imitation of nature has opened a whole new field of science, called biomimicry.
When God gave man the directive to have dominion over the earth, a part of that includes gaining an understanding of God’s creation—so this knowledge can be used for God’s glory and man’s good. The Lord has allowed mankind to accumulate knowledge to develop the incredible technology we see today.
Can a robot’s software “evolve” to cope with physical changes, such as the addition of new features? Robert Gordon University engineer Christopher MacLeod and colleagues designed a robot that can adapt to changes by “mimicking biological evolution.”
Ancient man, far from being the commonly perceived illiterate brute, was a genius. Some of his ancient technologies still confound historians today.
God invented it first! Scientists often look to impressive designs in nature to develop their technology.
A novel satellite is scheduled to investigate the feasibility of using “solar wind” as a source of propulsion for spacecraft by using solar sails.
Some creatures produce tenaciously sticky substances and researchers hope to mimic these materials to create safer surgical procedures.
Modern advances in computers have taken artificial intelligence to stunning new levels. Will that threaten our humanity?
Modern technology can help people in great need. But what if technology can be repurposed to enhance healthy people beyond their natural limits?
Truth or science fiction? It’s possible to bypass your ears and send electrical signals directly to the brain. True.
The orb weaver has a unique “stay away” warning system that has inspired new technology to save birds’ lives.
On July 9, the internationally respected Sunday Times (of London) published an article by Richard Woods on the digital revolution.
Many programs allegedly simulating evolution are in use today, some even being used to make works of art.1 Many people have been misled by such demonstrations of 'life evolving on the screen'.
