Scientists Create Spinach Plants That Can Send Emails


If you had an email-sending spinach plant, what kind of emails would you have it send?

Researchers at MIT have been working on the truly important stuff - teaching spinach plants how to send emails. 

Engineers used nanotechnology to develop plants that can emit a fluorescent signal. 

When an infrared camera picks up that signal, an email is sent to researchers. 

They say the technology could potentially be used to detect explosives and send off a warning signal. 

It could also be used to detect pollution. 

It's all part of the emerging research field known as 'plant nanobionics.'
