Bio-inspired design

Stand still and consider the wondrous works of God. (Job 37:14)

He does great things which we cannot comprehend. (Job 37:5)

I have had the privilege of studying the design of living organisms such as birds, fish, insects and trees under the microscope in the laboratory. In particular I have studied the linkage mechanisms in jaws, limbs and wings and produced many scientific papers reporting the amazing features of design they contain. The supreme design found in nature is a huge challenge to evolution because if evolution were true, then nature must contain inferior design to human design because humans are not constrained by the severe restriction of step-by step change. Yet science has shown that nature contains clearly superior design to human technology. The conclusion must surely be that creation has a Designer.

Bio-inspired design

I have worked on several bio-inspired design projects including:

  • Bio-inspired knee joint
  • Bio-inspired micro air vehicles
  • Bio-Inspired medical devices

See below for pictures:
