Spinach Can Now Send Emails & Social Media Users Can’t Wait To Receive Them

It’s 2021, and MIT scientists have taught spinach to send emails while we are still left on ‘read’. Yes, we are not kidding. Technology is advancing every single day and, the fact that a vegetable can now send emails should not come as a shock. They fitted spinach leaves with nanotubes thousands of times narrower than a human hair. But how do they send emails you ask? When the roots absorb certain chemicals in the soil, the nanotubes emit a signal detected by an infrared camera attached to a computer. This, in turn, triggers an email alert.
