Experienced the long period of stringent evolution, the living organisms develop their unique structures and materials through natural selection, and thus adapt to the nature. Inspired by the living organisms, a new, interdisciplinary, and cutting-edge bionics which permeates and combines not just biology, computer science, but also nanotechnology, materials science, chemistry, physics has grown considerably in recent years [1, 2, 3]. Bionics refers to the application of biological methods, structures, functions, and systems found in nature to the study and design of engineering systems and modern technology for the purpose of solving complex problems which have troubled human beings for decades [1, 2, 3]. A crystallization of mankind’s intelligence, bionics is a significant symbol of scientific and technological progress, which may find a wide range of applications in communications, mechanical engineering, biomedicine, artificial intelligence and so on.
