In Other Words: Informational Videos - Fiorenzo Omenetto: Silk, the ancient material of the future

This video made me go, "hmmm, very interesting!". It reminded me of a talk by Cheryl Hayashi at Cal State Fullerton in which she talked about properties of spider silk. Anyway, the reason I am posting this video here is because silk is another one of those bio-based materials that although known for a long time, have huge potential for alternative uses in the future.
