I would like to show you the following picture of DaimlerCrysler bionic car, the creation of which was inspired by the box fish and tree growth patterns.

This is one of the best examples of biomimetics design utilization on practice. The creators of car have decided to utilize boxfish design, as it has extremely aerodynamic body, which is extremely useful for large volume, small wheel based car. The structure of the car and the chassis are also biomimetic, because they were designed through utilization of computer modeling method, which is based upon the way how trees are growing to minimize stresses (Mazzoleni, 2013).
