TEDTalks - Robert Full: How engineers learn from evolution

About this talk: Insects and animals have evolved some amazing skills -- but, as Robert Full notes, many animals are actually over-engineered. The trick is to copy only what's necessary. He shows how human engineers can learn from animals' tricks.
Time 20:22 minutes; Filmed February 2002; Posted on TED: June 2008

About Robert Full: Robert Full studies cockroach legs and gecko feet. His research is helping build the perfect "distributed foot" for tomorrow's robots, based on evolution's ancient engineering.
