Biomimicry is the science of implementing natures solutions to our technical problems. Often nature already found best solutions to problems like water-repellence, leight-weight structures or light emission. Nature works resourceful and with least energy to be used. It would be great to have a simple opensource library to collect those principles of nature, letting the public know what exists and simplify collaboration between industries, engineers, designers, labratories and scientists. Industries have the advantage of more cost-efficient production and innovative products/manufacturing - scientist get a platform to communicate their researches and generate funding for it. win-win-situation right?
