Ocean Innovation: Biomimetics Beneath the Waves by Iain A. Anderson & Julian Vincent & John Montgomery

Biomimetics is the idea of creating new technologies abstracted from what we find in biology. Ocean Innovation: Biomimetics Beneath the Waves seeks that technological inspiration from the rich biodiversity of marine organisms.

Bringing both a biological and engineering perspective to the biomimetic potential of oceanic organisms, this richly illustrated book investigates questions such as:

  • How can we mimic the sensory systems of sea creatures like sharks, sea turtles, and lobsters to improve our ability to navigate underwater?
  • What can we do to afford humans the opportunity to go unnoticed by marine life?
  • How can we diffuse oxygen from water to enable deep diving without the risk of decompression sickness?

Each chapter explores an area where we, as divers and technologists, can benefit from understanding how animals survive in the sea, presenting case studies that demonstrate how natural solutions can be applied to mankind's engineering challenges.
