Insects Use Plant Like a "Telephone"


Dutch ecologist Roxina Soler and her colleagues have discovered that
subterranean and aboveground herbivorous insects can communicate with each other by using plants as telephones. Subterranean insects issue chemical warning signals via the leaves of the plant. This way, aboveground insects are alerted that the plant is already 'occupied’.

Camera 'Sees' Under Clothes

A British company has developed a camera that can detect weapons, drugs, and explosives hidden under people's clothes from a distance of up to 25 meters. This new device may prove to be a major breakthrough for the security industry, helping to keep crowded airports, shopping malls, and large sporting events safe.

The high-powered camera, called the T5000, was created by the U.K. Company ThruVision. The T5000 uses a new type of "passive imaging technology" in order to identify objects by the natural electromagnetic rays, known as Terahertz or T-rays, which they emit.
