application of biological methods and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology

Bionics (also known as biomimetics) is the science about studying nature to create modern technology.

Leonardo da Vinci tried to study the flying of birds to create a device that would allow a human to fly. Although he failed, this is a typical example of bionics.
