Described as a “visionary” and “futurist” by the Science Channel, Jay Harman is an award-winning entrepreneur and biomimetic inventor. He founded research and manufacturing companies that develop, patent, and license innovative products, ranging from prize-winning watercraft to interlocking building bricks, afterburners for aircraft engines, and non-invasive technology for measuring blood glucose and other electrolytes. He is credited with being among the first pioneering scientists to make biomimicry—the science of employing nature in advancing sustainable technology—a cornerstone of modern and future engineering. His latest ventures—PAX Scientific, PAX Water Technologies, PAX Mixer, and PAX Streamline—design more efficient industrial equipment including refrigeration, turbines, fans, mixers, and pumps based on his revolutionary concepts. Harman’s debut book, “The Shark’s Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How Nature Is Inspiring Innovation,” was published in 2013.
