Episode 35: Dr. Stephen Levin: Biotensegrity

 

I am talking with Dr. Stephen Levin about what biotensegrity is, the many ways that we are not like skyscrapers, how the difference between the bicycle wheel and the wagon wheel can illustrate the concept of how we are “pre-stressed”, what viscoelasticity is, the shoulder as a sesamoid bone, some examples of the many tensegrity structures we can find in nature if we know what we’re looking for, what the ichosahedron has going for it and why we should care, and more!
