Synopsis

Nature still defeats human beings in designing machines that can live comfortably in the world around them. Taking the hint, engineers trying to create robots increasingly are turning to living creatures for inspiration. From a giant mechanical cockroach to robotic flying insects, from robotunas to robolobsters, viewers see how nature's ideas are leading to faster, smarter and sturdier robots -- including some modeled on the most complex animals of all: human beings.
