|Speech Title||Apply bird beak research on Bionic design|
The gripping action of the hand is close to the biting behavior of the animal's mouth in nature. Taking the unique mouth shape of the "black-faced spoonbill" as the most internationally conserved among migratory birds in Taiwan as the starting point, the analysis results are presented from the perspective of bionic shape design. Furthermore, the imagery and characteristics it represents are further embodied to achieve the purpose of applying design and creative products.
The hand grasping and gripping patterns considered in creative application products can be divided into four categories: two-finger, three-finger, four-finger, and full-finger. Combined with the relevant design conditions and restrictions, for the elderly or those who are not used to chopsticks in the Eastern culture, or even the fingers of the hand are defective and can not normally chopsticks, provide another convenient use of the new auxiliary food final design concept mode The three-finger type is closer to the general way of holding chopsticks, so a creative chopstick was designed according to its method. In terms of the discussion of the golden ratio of the shape of the bird's beak, the golden ratio of the beak's beak shape is the most suitable for other creative products.
