[pic]Abstract

Man always wanted to scale new heights of technology in order to make his life better than the best. His thirst for sophisticated life has never come to an end. He always demanded more power, more comfort. In this quest we present you the world of bionics which examines the ways in which technology is inexorably driving us to a new and different level of humanity, Tran humanism. As scientists draw on nanotechnology, molecular biology, artificial intelligence, and innovative bio-materials science, they are routinely using sophisticated surgical techniques to implant computer chips and drug-dispensing devices into our bodies, designing fully functional man-made body parts, and linking human brains with computers to make people healthier, smarter, and stronger. In short, we are going beyond what was once only science fiction to create bionic people with fully integrated artificial components and it will not be long before we reach the ultimate goal of constructing a completely synthetic human-like being. The central idea of bionics is learning from nature,

Hence by the bio-mimetic approach we can improve the quality of living. For example an ant can lift a mass i.e. 51 times more than its body weight. Bionics is an interdisciplinary field dealing with “BIO-logy and Tech-NICS” and is an official science since the sixties approximately. The central idea of bionics can be summarized as “learning from nature”. Bionics also called Tran humanism in human perspective.

Key words:
Bionics or Biocyberenics or Biomimetics, Biognosis or Biomimicry or Bio-mechanics, Tran humanism, Nanotechnology, Molecular biology, Artificial intelligence, Bio-materials science, Lotus effect , Cybernetics, Artificial Neural Networks(ANN).

Introduction

Bionics is an interdisciplinary field dealing with “BIO-logy and Tech-NICS” and is an official science since the sixties approximately. The central idea of bionics can be summarized as “learning from nature”. In an evolutionary process lasting millions of years, nature has developed refined solutions to problems which remain a great challenge to scientists today – despite the current, advanced state of scientific knowledge. Examples include robust, natural composite bio-materials, refined mechanisms for mobility, functional techniques for housing and construction, perfected information and communication systems, and highly sensitive sensors for perception. Many of these natural solutions to problems are true to the concept of sustainable development. Nature achieves its objectives economically. It requires a minimum amount of energy for the development and implementation of its solutions and recycles all waste produced in the process. Using this original bio-principle, scientists have created a Bionic suit which offers more strength to nurses to lift heavier patients also and also used by disaster management crew in emergency. Even wastage of valuable human energy is minimized to great extent and also provides efficiency. It offers a ray of hope to the physically challenged people with bionic eye, bionic ear, bionic leg, bionic hand, kidney, and cardio-west. Nature offers a wealth of experience which must be tapped for its potential to inspire innovations useful for human society. The history of bionics follows a path of development leading to...
