Biomimicry Alberta: Crowd-funding for a Structural Colour Taxonomic Interface

Kickstarter project by Carlos Fiorentino to finish programming critical components of the Rich Prospect Taxonomic Interface.  Goal is CAD$6K by July 19.

New discoveries in the understanding of structural colour are emerging, with potential applications for the disciplines of both biology and design. In physics, structural colour is described as “light interference” and is produced by the very small-scale structures of some materials. The properties of these materials are of particular interest to biomimicry practitioners, and advances could be game-changers for print and colour applications; for the screens of phones and other devices; and for signalling and communication strategies, to name a few. The proposed Rich Prospect Taxonomic Interface is a visual database that will share scientific information, encourage collaboration, and ultimately facilitate the development of real-world applications.
