Biomimicry WDCD Session
  • Creating a gecko-esque sticky net that gathers waste plastic to float whilst filtering water to drink and survive.
  • A large mutant pelican which can hold people as well as gathering material via its large mouth.
  • Groups of lily-pads which can float and hold people whilst being able to attach to each other to allow communities to join together.
  • A flood-emergency pack that provides everything you would need to solve a flood quickly and effectively.
