Biomimetics, Biomimesis
Originally, designs or technology that were inspired by or based on living organisms. With developing biotech and bionano during the Information and early Interplanetary Age the line between the technical and the organic began to blur. Often now whether a nanite or microbot is considered hylonano or bionano is purely an arbitrary decision. Some vecs also are so organic in form, function, and structure as to appear indistinguishable from a living being.
