The BioInspired! Newsletter has been re-launched as part of a new bio-inspired design community. The associated website consolidates the BioInspired! newsletter archive, the original BioInspired e-magazine, resources and events. Please update your bookmarks - in a few months, this weblog will be discontinued.
Welcome to the re-launch of the BioInspired! newsletter and the announcement of the new Bio-Inspired (BID) Community. This issue includes articles on:
- the history and future of the BioInspired! newsletter
- an overview of the Bio-Inspired Design Community
- a look at areas where bio-inspired design has had particular impact, including Architecture (Tom McKeag), Industrial Design (Carlos Alberto Montana Hoyos), Materials (Norbert Hoeller), Systems and Processes (Marc Weissburg) and Cognition (Ashok K. Goel)
- a list of questions for future exploration
- a calendar of public events
- a Call to Action for BID Community members
Thanks to everyone who contributed to the newsletter!
