Abstract

Multidisciplinary fields are incorporating biomimicry by creating technologies and ways of thinking that imitate the natural world. Specifically, material sciences are employing biomimicry to outsmart a biological challenge, the antibacterial battle. The majority of modern day antibacterial products boast a 98% kill rate when it comes to germs. Through the use of catchy slogans and user-friendly imagery, the masses generally feel safe from germ infestation after using these antibacterial products.
