memorysticks

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 https://nextnature.net/?p=1705–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 http://www.oooms.nl/ 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?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
