#IoTFriday E20 | Biomimicry


Add more biology to IoT. Looking at nature brings great solutions to the table. Nature had billions of years to do R&D. Every single problem has been evolved into great solutions. The variety nature gives us is too valuable to ignore and with biomimicry we can do just that. By looking at nature’s solutions and imitating it in our day to day lives we can get unexpected and great products around us.

With IoT great new solutions surround us on this day and with Biomimicry we can enhance these and come up with some great new ones. In the design phase of your IoT solution: bring a biologist to the table!

Let’s use nature to:

  • reduce traffic jams
  • communicate as effective as possible
  • create new materials
  • build new IoT solutions
