SOURCES OF UNIQUE UNDERWATER INSPIRATION ARE ALL AT SEA LIFE

SEA LIFE Aquarium is home to thousands of sea creatures that are nature’s inspirations. At SEA LIFE, you can see some of the most interesting species of sea creatures that have inspired humans in everything from automobiles to airplanes, sunglasses and swimming suits.

Thousands of sea creatures, which have provided mankind with inspiration, present the art of nature to you in all its glory at the SEA LIFE Aquarium. While touring the SEA LIFE Aquarium, you will see for yourself how nature inspires people, when you notice the similarity of the giant sting rays drifting over you in the ocean tunnel to American stealth fighter aircraft, and how sharks are reminiscent of war planes and expensive sports cars. You will understand firsthand how many other animals have brought science to life.

Sharks have inspired the design of many machines like the tails of airplanes that function for steering, the whole body of World War 2 airplanes with propellers and even the bodies of sports cars. Sharks even have a mark on the swimming suits we wear. Sharks, which can swim at speeds of up to 80 km per hour, have a special type of skin. This skin, which prevents friction and enables smooth swimming, was an inspiration for swimsuits. A technique in swimsuits very similar to shark skin involves adding a weave that is similar to shark skin to the vertical resin strips.

With their aesthetic structure and maneuvering skills, sting rays are some of the best predators of the sea. The appearance of these species as if flying through the sea with wide fins and a flat shape was the inspiration for ‘Stealth Aircraft’, one of the world’s most successful airplane designs. The design of the American B-2 bomber aircraft, valued at 1.4 billion dollars each, looks very similar to a giant stingray flying through the sky.

The ‘Puffer Fish’, a species that lives in the warm seas of Southeastern Asia and a favorite of children, is the inspiration for some interesting mechanics that impact our lives. Colormatic glasses….When puffer fish are exposed to too much light they put on these ‘glasses’. There is a feature on this species of fish that measures about 2-3 cm, which is similar to photochromic lenses. The color of this biological lens gets lighter or darker depending on the light exposure, just like colormatic glasses.
