“Bionics” as an inter-science discipline offi-cially dates back to 1958 when Major J. E. Steele coined the term making reference to a research program at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, USA. Steele (1960) used the term bionics to mean “a like-life system that copies some functions and characteristics of a natural system.”A similar term,
