Description: A lot of organisms have found wonderful solutions to adhere to all kinds of surfaces in nature, whether it is to accommodate, to move or to protect themselves. Others, on the contrary, succeeded to create the most slippery surfacing on which no dirt, no germ or anything else can hang.
What if these adhesion and slip superpowers created by the living world could enable us to innovate? Materials that “bind” or “repel” are essential and have always been a part of our fundamental needs. More and more scientists, designers and entrepreneurs draw inspiration from fauna and flora to create cheaper, more efficient and more sustainable sticky or slippery materials and surfacing than the ones currently used.
In this episode, Kalina Raskin will meet researchers, all experts in the Super Glue or the Hyper Slip of the future.
