Biomimicry – The Kingfisher and the Bullet Train

This video comes from Habitat Seven and shows how nature can help solve problems through biomimicry: “the mimicking of life using imitation biological systems”.

An engineer was faced with a problem that would potentially derail the Japanese bullet train but copied the design of the kingfisher to solve it! Definitely worth the watch!
