Now here's a nice piece of dead old nature I would like to stick in my computer! Notice the beautiful micro-organism-patterns.

The reason why I didn't mention this "gadget" together with the–post yesterday, is that there is no biomimicking involved here. The Universal Serial Bus–device was called after the wooden stick because... well probably the inventors couldn't think of a better metaphor. (They could have called it a USB–plug or USB–finger if you will...) And now the boomeranged the metaphor right back to that device by using the original material. We can all see that "the joke" is a bit childish, but does it matter when it results in these nice, ridiculous pieces of art?

Not entirely related, but still interesting on the subject of how we interpret/interact with nature:

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
