Imagine one day you could climb like the ‘Spiderman’; imagine one day you could swim like a shark… Are these just pictured by popular ‘Sci-Fi’ movies? No, they are also the objectives of the frontier research in the engineering, publically known as bio-inspired engineering. Indeed, the concept of bio-inspiration is not new. In the ancient times, our first tool was made by mimicking the nature; however, most of the early efforts motivated by crude imitation were not successful. Therefore, since the modern times, our civilization has been driven mainly by human intelligence. Nevertheless, the classic approach has already come to its limit for addressing today’s technological challenges. With the rise of nanotechnology, we are now aware that nature provides us the ultimate source to find better solutions. With the surge of this renewed interest, it is the time for us to revisit the ideas of ‘learning from nature’.
