Scientists Send Message using Alcohol in Vodka

Scientists Send Message using Alcohol in Vodka

Advancement in technology has surprised us for a long period of time and it is still surprising us. Well, this time scientists have done something hard to imagine, sending a text message by using alcohol in vodka. This really sounds incredible, isn't it?

Scientists in Canada and the UK have actually sent a generic message a few meters through open space. This has opened doors for researchers to send text using alcohol at places where wireless communication is not possible. It could be a remedy to the problem not effective working of electromagnetic waves. It is a step forward for scientists in the world of molecular communication by developing a range of applications by using alcohol..

"Imagine sending a detailed message using perfume -- it sounds like something from a spy thriller novel, but in reality it is an incredibly simple way to communicate", said Dr. Weisi Guo of the University of Warwick in the UK said in a school news release.

He said short-ranged signaling have already been proved by using chemicals. But the latest experiment has taken scientists to the level by communicating continuous and generic messages over several meters. They used evaporated vodka as the medium to send the message that read, 'O, Canada'.
