    If a fly's eye can see without hundreds of fancy lenses, and termite mounds can stay cool in the desert without air conditioning, it stands to reason that nature can teach us a thing or two about technology and innovation.

    In Adapt, Amina Khan explores the exciting new science of biomimicry, which shows how we can borrow designs from nature to solve complex problems. The field is growing rapidly and everyone from architects to biologists to nano-technicians to engineers are paying attention. Whether it's maximizing wind power by arranging turbines to imitate schools of fish or aping the skin of a cuttlefish to make military camouflage gear, nature is already inspiring technological breakthroughs.

    Adapt shares the weird and wonderful ways that nature has been working smarter and not harder, and shows us that by looking to her for new and innovative ideas, we can design more sustainably and efficiently for our future. An entertaining eulogy to the power of evolution, this is also a must-read for anyone with an interest in design and technology.
