For the third year in a row, the Biomimicry Institute, a non-profit organication that promotes the study and imitation of designs found in nature, is sponsoring the Biomimicry Student Design Challenge. This year the Challenge, which is open to college students world-wide, is to use biomimicry to design a solution that results in more efficient use of energy and ultimately reduces greenhouse gases. No small feat, but the Institute provides students with plenty of resources on biomimicry....
Experiments with acne-piercing lasers have been conducted before, but this time, the laser electron is not "the size of an entire hospital," but the size of a DVD player.
