  7. Clothing colored without dyes like a butterfly, a peacock, or a sea slug

  8. Sandwich bags that biodegrade like tethers of blue mussel and zip closed like a feather

  9. Systems interconnected like trees in a old-growth forest Computers as fast as neurons Computer screens that create color the same way as wings of a butterfly
