Should robots be inspired by nature?

In contradiction to the myth, it is very rarely by « copying » the nature that one conceives new machines. Planes are not directly modelised birds, like computers have not been constructed like human brains. Technical inventions follow its own rules : it is mainly about combining in a new way technical elements of a certain time (Kaplan, F. (2011) « l’Homme, l’Animal, et la Machine », p.40, CNRS éditions, Paris)
