Nature has already solved many problems that doctors, researchers, and architects are still trying to solve for humans. For example, some of our prior posts have talked about how some animals are resistant to developing cancer:
Other animals have developed special nano antibodies (nanobodies) to fight disease.
While several are tolerant of very low oxygen levels in the environment, others are champions of holding their breath:
Now, researchers at Harvard have replicated the architecture of a sponge using a 3D printer and found that the lattice design created by sponges is stronger than man-made lattice designs:
Why reinvent the wheel when nature is continually providing solutions?
