First day

As suggested during the lecture, my expectations of the course content deviated quite a bit from the content of the first lectures. I was expecting that the project would be geared more towards the application of biologically-inspired technologies in engineering, e.g. aerodynamics, materials engineering, biochechemistry. In other words, I had expected more of a 'hard science' approach.

So at first I was a little averse to the idea of focussing on the psychology aspect of biomimicry design, but the ideas presented during the lecture made it clear to me that this is indeed a crucial and often neglected factor with respect to the successful design and adoption of new technologies. Therefore I'm glad that this course seems to approach the design from a more multidisciplinary angle, with specific attention to the succesful bringing into practice of engineering design applications.
