Inspired by Nature / Biomimicry

Humans have developed civilizations, sciences and technologies from trial and error since the dawn of history.
Still, we could never hold a candle to natural systems.

  • Why do raindrops rolling on lotus leaves keep their round shape?
  • How can silkworms churn out such strong and beautiful silk threads 1300 to 1500 meters long?

Living things can easily do what humans cannot do.
At the same time, they neither go against natural laws nor harm the natural environment beyond the point of no recovery.

These wonderful and intriguing systems of nature are nowadays becoming a subject of research and development -- technologies inspired from nature -- now being known as "biomimicry" or "nature technology."

JFS has conducted projects twice, in 2005 and 2011, to develop a global portal website and disseminate information about concepts and examples of technologies learned from nature.

This JFS webpage provides you information from in both projects.
