Designing and Creating a Mouse Using Nature-Inspired Shapes

نویسندگان

چکیده

Human beings have always made their tools and instruments they need using patterns in nature. Mimicking nature has become the foundation of a new science called Biomimetics. In the present article, multiple forms and levels in nature were utilized to design and create a mouse. The rivers are a good source for choosing the shape of a mouse with lots of stones abraded through the centuries which also have smooth surfaces. In this research, a significant number of stones fitted to hand size were collected and then the best ones were scanned by an optical scanner. The point cloud model obtained was used to design and create the mouse and determine the geometric parameters of the mouse. After extracting the 3D model of the point cloud using a rapid prototyping technique with the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) method, some mouse models were designed ambidextrously for left-handed and right-handed people. Considering the results of the mouse evaluation by 30 people who were provided with the mouse, it can be concluded that the created mouse provided a high rate of satisfaction.

The notion of replicating the unique fracture resistance of natural composites in synthetic materials has generated much interest but has yielded few real technological advances. Here we demonstrate how using ice-templated structures, the concept of hierarchical design can be applied to conventional compounds such as alumina and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) to make bulk hybrid materials tha...

are a subset of MANETs in which vehicles are considered as network clients. These networks have been created to communicate between vehicles and traffic control on the roads. have similar features to MANETs and their main special property is the high-speed node mobility which makes a quick change of the network. The rapid change of network topology is a major challenge in routing. One of the we...

Automatic satellite image registration for multi-sensor images is becoming increasingly important to aid in flood damage assessment. We consider two images, the one before flood (optical image) and the other during flood (SAR image) in the registration process. The objective is to maximize the similarity metric (of these two images) using information theoretic measures such as Mutual Informatio...

This paper introduces collaborating robots which provide the possibility of enhanced task performance, high reliability and decreased. Collaborating-bots are a collection of mobile robots able to self-assemble and to self-organize in order to solve problems that cannot be solved by a single robot. These robots combine the power of swarm intelligence with the flexibility of self-reconfiguration ...

NodeBox is a free application for producing generative art. This paper gives an overview of the nature-inspired functionality in NodeBox and the artworks we created using it. We demonstrate how it can be used for evolutionary computation in the context of computer games and art, and discuss some of our recent research with the aim to simulate (artistic) brainstorming using language processing t...

In this paper, it shown that the Feature-Extracting Bidirectional Associative Memory (FEBAM) can create its own set of perceptual features. Using a bidirectional associative memory (BAM)-inspired architecture, FEBAM inherits properties such as attractor-like behavior and successful processing of noisy inputs, while being able to achieve principal component analysis (PCA) tasks such as feature e...
