Scientists sent a text message using chemicals

Chemistry instead of electricity

It is well known that all electronic devices “communicate” with each other by electricity – either by wires or by electromagnetic waves. Experiments conducted by scientists at Stanford University, suggest that this “language of communication” is not the only one. To transfer data from one computer to another, they used chemicals.

Instead of transmitting traditional units and zeros, the system sends pulses with acetic acid and a liquid for cleaning the panes . Messages in the binary system of chemical bits pass through the plastic tubes to the computer, which tracks changes in the pH level (acid-base balance) to decode the message.

There are many options for using unique know-how: creation of backup communication channels in the event of a sudden power outage, the transmission of electrical signals under water, and also inside the human body.
