In 1989, Japan's Shinkansen train had a problem, it was really fast moving at 167mph but it made too much noise while exiting a tunnel, which could be heard 400meters away and that was really a problem.
An engineering team was brought in to solve the problem, their General Manager EIJI NAKATSU happens to be a bird-watcher. He had ideas of recreating the whole thing with different birds in his creative mind.
The redesigned components were based on different birds; OWLS inspired the Pantograph (the rails that connects the train to the electrical wires above), He modelled the redesign after their feathers, reducing noise by using the same curvature that enables them to silently swoop down to capture preys.
THE KINGFISHER bird was the most notable of all, the Kingfisher is a bird that dives into water to capture prey.. the unique shape of its beak allows it to do that while barely making a splash, NAKATSU took that shape to the design table.
Long story short, the quietest known design is the one modelled after the Kingfisher's beak. When the redesign debuted in 1997, it was 10% faster and uses 15% less electricity. The name for designs like this is BIOMIMICRY.
Bottom Line, I honesty don't think a man would sit and think of all these unique ideas and concepts that happened to shape our world. It had to be God. It definitely is.
God is not a substitute for science and art, there is science, art and nature because of God.
EVERY GOOD IDEA COMES FROM GOD.
Today I'm trying my hands on motion graphics (for real this time). Not looking at all the things I could have been but what God's promises are for me and what I'm becoming.
I thank God for the ideas he's put (still putting) in my head and for hooking me up with someone like @theweirdgene he's really been supportive of my ideas and has been giving me pro tips on improving on them. Can't be more grateful.
