... and such classic paradigms as power amplification ( Vogel, 2005a , b , 2009 ). The ability of these systems to inspire discovery, catalyze new pathways for cross-cutting discoveries in the field of biology, and open new pathways for novel design in materials and robotics is as much a testament...

... by the traditional means of jointed appendages (i.e. legs). Elaterid beetles belong to a group of organisms that amplify muscle power through morphology to produce extremely fast movements. Elaterids achieve power amplifications through a hinge situated in the thoracic region. The actuating components of the hinge...
