Biomimicry!

Whom else to mimic other than the most experienced creator* known till date i.e nature. Bio-mimicry is the science which studies nature and natural phenomenon and then, tries to solve modern-day problems by mimicking nature's solutions to comparable ones. Nature (i.e evolution) has been building solutions for its problems since millions of years. Even without any conscious thought or intelligence, nature has managed to produce extremely optimal designs which have survived the test of time. Copying nature is not all that unobvious then :)

Here is a list of some cool cases of bio-mimicry - http://bit.ly/biomimicry

*Pardon the anthropomorphosis. By 'creator', i do not wish to mean an intentioned creator.
