Has the wheel taken us to the end of our road? Biomechanics’ functional morphologic approach to problems reveals the feasibility of machine designs through studying living phenomena. In addition to the solution of standing problems, the method leads to a series of advanced concepts -- from a one-man cupola simulating an arthropod claw to a weapons firing platform based on the structure, form, and movement found in a snake -- which are useful for new weapons development in the light of our rapidly advancing technology. Outgrowths are expected from this type of investigation through design ingenuity.
