Scientists at McGill University in Canada have developed a hydrogel bandage that can be bonded to the skin using ultrasound. The application of ultrasound to the bandage stimulates micro-bubbles that bond the hydrogel molecules to the skin.
Scientists from Michigan State University have discovered that locusts can not only smell cancer cells, but changes in their brain activity that can be measured also change depending on the type of cancer cell that they smell. Harnessing this diagnostic capability could allow large scale early stage cancer detection.
Scientists at the University of Texas stored an encrypted version of The Wizard of Oz in 256 bits of data encoded within polymers of ink. The ink was used to write a letter, which can later be decoded using depolymerization and liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry equipment.
Researchers at the University of Texas have discovered that by injecting air into a dead spider, they can open and close the legs of the spider and use it as a zombie spider grappling hook to lift 130% of the spider's weight.
