Discovery of Design: Searching Out the Creator's Secrets
This 2009 well-illustrated book compiles nearly one hundred designs from nature that have been turned into useful products. They include velcro, surveillance, bullet trains, and optics. Scientists, engineers and inventors increasingly look to nature for solutions to problems and inspiration for new products. The authors suggest an entirely new paradigm for nature study: Searching out the useful ideas embedded in the world by the Creator.
An accompanying website DiscoveryofDesign.com catalogues a growing list of practical design ideas from Creation. Additional ideas are invited from readers.
