Another business using and certainly running aground on patents for nature

Georgia Tech’s new Center for Biologically Inspired Design has been founded to “capitaliz[e] on the rich source of design solutions present in biological processes”. Should we start a sweep on how long before they get slapped down by some other patent-farmer?

Engineers have been getting clues from nature since they picked up a dead branch and thumped the lesser ape who was trying to steal his beer.

Re-invention of the bleeding obvious seems to be consuming lots of tertiary institutions.
