The usefulness of the natural world as a reliable source of concepts for other areas of science has been well documented, though not so well utilized. Current expertise stems from advances in a wide range of skills and sciences, covering polymer chemistry, computing, materials science, biology and nanotechnology. The missing component is the ability of bestriding the sciences and synthesizing novelty from pre-existing skills. TRIZ, a Russian system for inventive problem solving, is on the pathway to the desired singularity where all studies meet.
