Evolved Performance

We design super-efficient systems inspired by the deep study of evolutionary biomechanics

Our Process

By studying how animals move we are able to achieve significant improvements in the performance and efficiency of vehicles in water, air, and ground travel.

Problem Solving


We are interested in questioning key assumptions – the propeller as the universal solution to propulsion through water and air, the wheel over land.

Observation & Analysis


Inspiration comes from analysis of systems that exist in nature. Recent advances in computational analysis allow us to build deep insights into how performance gains are achieved.

R&D


Development in our Lab is via iterative design and testing, using a diverse set of skills and technical insights. We iteratively make and test systems, combining the latest electronics, design software and materials to optimise overall results.
