Isomorphism # 4 – The Mantis Shrimp

It’s not the first time that the human race copy ingenious situations or cases from nature (e.g. velcro), but it’s probably the first time mankind borrow ideas from the mantis shrimp. The mantis shrimp lives on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and it has the most complex vision systems known to science. The eyes of the shrimp can help mankind to make better optical devices in the future using liquid crystals that have been chemically engineered to mimic the properties of the cells in the mantis shrimp’s eye.

Are there situations, cases or phenomenons in my ordinary life where I can mimic things from nature?
