    Bionics (also known as biomimicry, biomimetics, bio-inspiration, biognosis,) is the application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology.

    The word bionic was coined by Jack E. Steele in 1958, possibly originating from the Greek word βίον, bíon.

    The transfer of technology between lifeforms and manufactures is, according to proponents of bionic technology, desirable because evolutionary pressure typically forces living organisms, including fauna and flora, to become highly optimized and efficient.

    A classical example is the development of dirt- and water-repellent paint (coating) from the observation that the surface of the lotus flower plant is practically unsticky for anything (the lotus effect).

    For example, we have a specific engineering problem to solve.
    We identify a biological system in which an analogous engineering problem has been solved.

    We use the enabling part of that system, whether a structural design, a processing route, or a biochemical component, to solve our engineering problem.
