Well we’ve split the atom, gone to the moon, flown a device in the atmosphere of Mars and even changed the course and flow of some mighty rivers. We do still have the common cold, cancer and that virus that’s been kicking ours ass, but science always seems to find something to help out. Now some scientists at Northwestern University have developed a flying microchip the size of a grain of sand that can be carried by the wind as it monitors such things as pollution levels or the spread of airborne diseases. The wind would scatter the tiny microchips, which could sense their surrounding environments and collect information. Heck of a way to gather info, but hey whatever works, right! Read below for a full explanation.
