Scientists use evaporated vodka to send text messages

  • Researchers in England have found a way to mix text messages and alcohol: They successfully encoded information using only vodka and a desk fan. 

    "We believe we have sent the world's first text message to be transmitted entirely with molecular communication, controlling concentration levels of the alcohol molecules to encode the alphabet," a lead researcher said. 

    "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," a researcher at the University of Warwick said. 

    Scientists mentioned that this technique could also have practical applications; it could have been used to detect the sewage blockage found in London earlier this year.
