Shark repellent wetsuit
Ok, so it's not strictly inspired by sharks, more our fear of them. But an Australian company's new shark repellent wetsuits were still created using research into sharks' predatory behavior.
Working with scientists at the University of Western Australia, the Shark Attack Mitigation Systems entrepreneurs have developed two suits which play against sharks' vision.
The blue and white "Elude" range, designed for divers and snorkelers, is believed to help camouflage the swimmer to sharks.
While the "Diverter," mainly for surfers, features bold black and white stripes which the fearsome creatures supposedly associate with unpalatable food.
