Khosla invests in turbine tech maker Pax


"The path of the spiral exerts considerably less energy and friction than a straight line"... this is a core idea of Pax Scientific, which is developing a range of technologies taking as design cues a design theory called biomimicry, coined by Janine Benyus, who wrote a seminal book on the subject in 1997. Biomimicry argues that nature uses only the energy it needs, fits form to function, and recycles everything.
