This really sounds like a story from a science friction. It is known that plants respond to chemicals in the environment in different ways, and people for long have used these hints from plants to predict the weather and the surrounding environment. But detecting an explosive. And being able to alert humans by an electronic signal. That is a huge leap forward in terms of nano-bionics. Imagine the possibilities of this technology. Instead of having to go through many scary scanners, we can have t...
