Biomimetics is a new interdisciplinary field that identifies potential useful processes & mechanisms in biological systems & organisms & imitates them in engineering systems. A brief introduction is given to biomimetics, followed by a case study involving the potential use of locomotion systems from marine worms in self-moving endoscopes.
