    DescriptionSince the Industrial Revolution, manufacturers have built things by using enormous amounts of energy to heat raw material, shaping it with heavy machinery, and maintaining its design and durability with toxic chemicals. Now, in a world of depleted natural resources, entrepreneurs and scientists are turning to nature to inspire future products that are more energy and cost efficient. Biomimicry, the science of employing nature toadvance sustainable technology, is perhaps one of the hottest new business concepts. Here Jay Harman introduces us to pioneering engineers in a wide array of businesses who are uncovering and copying nature's hidden marvels.
