Splashy Design

If you read this blog with any regularity, you'll know I have a big interest in design and there isn't a more exciting field right now than prosthetics. (See my post about really cool human prosthetics here.) It turns out we aren't the only animal species benefiting from advances in this field. Winter, the dolphin pictured, was caught in a crab trap and lost her tail. The gel that was designed for Winter to connect her new tail to her body is now being used on humans as well since it proved so effective. Considering how much damage we do to Mother Nature, it's great to hear a story about synergy between the species!
