Project 1 - (Re)Design
My redesign was creating an oversized inflatable tardigrade that could potentially float in the air. These animals lack the ability to see but are incredibly resilient and have the ability to live in some of the harshest conditions. They also have the ability to exist in an incredibly dormant state.
Size - 0.5mm
Habitat - Water (non-dormant state), Anywhere (desiccated state)
Ability to survive in a desiccated state for over a century
Retains all but three percent of the water in it’s body
Ability to slow metabolism to nearly 0.01 percent of its regular rate.
