Nature has worked out many things almost perfectly, whether cleverly arranged honeycombs or beetles that are virtually impossible to crush. This guided tour explores how technical challenges have been solved while often “stealing” adaptations of plants and animals.
At the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Museum of Science and Technology), technology becomes a unique experience on an area of more than 22,000 m2. In this guided tour, the museum presents its most valuable treasures and puts you in the mood for your own journey of discovery through the museum.
Humans can learn a lot from nature and imitate its solutions: For example, self-cleaning leaves provide inspiration for developing clothing that does not become dirty or wet. This search for traces through the exhibition has quite a few surprises in store, allowing the children to experience nature’s resourcefulness up close.
Nature has always been a source of inspiration for the construction of machines, building structures or other technical achievements. Humankind has always been aware of the perfection of many natural phenomena, trying to imitate and recreate it. Adaptations of nature are still frequently used for developments today.
In this guided tour, the Technisches Museum Wien (Vienna Museum of Science and Technology) focuses all attention on love: However, it’s about much more than just “amorous” technologies such as condom dispensers or vibrators.
