Editorial Reviews

Join Smithsonian Channel for this two time Emmy Award nominated look at biomimetics, the evolving science of looking to nature for answers to modern problems often in unexpected ways.

In Earth's 4 billion year history, nature has solved all of life s problems, from the highest mountain to the deepest ocean. Evolution is the ultimate inventor and many of man s most clever engineering solutions have exact counterparts in nature.

In three amazing episodes, NatureTech views our world with fresh eyes, where nature and technology stand hand in hand. Flies improve search and rescue, termite feces helps builders, pine cones inspire new age apparel and sharks Olympic swimsuits, nanotechnology mimics moths, Arctic poppies influence eco-friendly architecture, cockroaches inspire space engineers, fish become cars and airplanes take the shape of birds.

Magic of Motion, The aerodynamics of how animals walk, swim and fly. All the Wright Brothers needed to do was look up to the Turkey Vulture? Nature inspired man's earliest motion and continues to do so today.

The Material World, Nature is full of amazing materials, tougher than steel and sharper than our finest optics, and uses them in extraordinary ways. Scientists look for materials that are warmer, smarter, stronger and more eco-friendly.

Energy is the Key, Sunlight and plants, the alchemy of life. Human mastery of fire freed us from energy constraints, but at what cost? The search for new ways to live on our planet.

NatureTech received a Parent s Choice Foundation Gold Award and was named Best Limited Series at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival.

We are very impressed by the elaborate photography. It is fascinating to watch a raptor's flight in slow motion or see a raindrop fall onto a leaf: In itself it is not too spectacular but when the extraordinary properties of some plants and animals are explained, the spectator watches in awe!
After having gained this unusual insight into how something works, it is then translated into our technological world and a possible use (enhancement) for our lives (e.g. water repellent materials).
The film shows many microscopic views that help understand the surfaces of an animal skin, leg, foot or eye (and many more): They provide stunning insights into the basics of aero-, thermo- and aquadynamics.
We also enjoyed the scientific approach to each topic as it encourages especially younger viewers to study their environment even more attentively and thouroughly.
It all summits at the end of the movie when we become reminded that we may succeed in copying nature's many skills but never quite excell to the perfectionism of 300 billion years of evolution!
A film for everyone who is curious about nature, and who is intelligent enough to respect each creature even if it may appear unattractive at first sight.
