Invented by Animals: Meet the Creatures Who Inspired Our Everyday Technology

Invented by Animals: Meet the Creatures Who Inspired Our Everyday Technology

by Christiane Dorion and Gosia Herba

Did you ever wonder where the idea to make paper from wood pulp came from? Or whether someone could design a real invisibility cloak someday? Or how cool it could be to be able to crawl across a ceiling? All these ideas and more came from scientists, inventors and other curious folks studying animals and insects! Think about it... Animals and insects have been finding amazing ways to adapt their skins, scales, eyes, feet and spit (and more!) to live on Earth for millions of years. Who knows, you might be inspired by the animals you read about and invent something marvelous that the world would thank you for!
