VIDEO: These Bionic Plants Can Sniff Out Bombs!

MIT researchers have engineered a bionic plant that can detect explosives and send a warning signal — without wires! — to scientists nearby.

Talk about spinach as superfood, Popeye!

In a new paper in the journal Nature Materials, the scientists explain how they can turn plants into bomb-sniffing machines with the help of tiny cylinders of carbon that can detect “nitroaromatics” — chemical compounds often used in explosives…[READ MORE]
