High-tech innovations inspired by nature have emerged in everything from adhesives to display screens, self-healing coatings, and renewable energy technologies. PAX Scientific has used biomimicry to create a number of solutions related to fluid and air movement, which it licenses to other companies. Subsidiary PAX Water Technologies uses a water mixing technology to keep drinking water safe in storage tanks while reducing the need to add disinfectants and requiring less energy than other mixers. Its “Lily” impeller looks much like a nautilus shell.

Now PAX’s spiral flow design has been adopted in the Goody Flash Dry Blow Dryer. The dryer uses PAX’s fan technology to improve flow and work faster, saving time and energy.

Have you seen new biomimicry solutions in other household items?
