Electrical wires innovate too! (Photo Credits)
Wires are the main bridge way of electric current and it has come a long way, and a lot of innovations have sprouted from it from the time it was invented many, many years ago.
The innovations are so great that even a blind girl can get to appreciate what her father would like her to experience.
Website Independent Journal Review shared this story of an explosives expert who wired an Easter Egg for her blind daughter to experience the fun of joining an Easter Egg Hunt. Association of Edison Illuminating Companies
“So he did some internet research and connected with a man who told him how to make beeping eggs. Unfortunately, creating the eggs was extremely expensive. But because Hyche is an Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) agent that works with explosives, he was able to modify the design. He built a $12 model using a switch, a piezo beeper, a 9-volt battery and battery clip. So when activated, the egg made a beeping sound which allowed Rachel to find it.”

Phys.Org featured this study in one of its posts. “Stanford engineers have designed and built a prism-like device that can split a beam of light into different colors and bend the light at right angles, a development that could eventually lead to computers that use optics, rather than electricity, to carry data. They describe what they call an “optical link” in an article in Scientific Reports. The optical link is a tiny slice of silicon etched with a pattern that resembles a bar code. When a beam of light is shined at the link, two different wavelengths (colors) of light split off at right angles to the input, forming a T shape. This is a big step toward creating a complete system for connecting computer components with light rather than wires.”

Some scientists meanwhile are mimicking DNA Technology as they develop wiring systems as shared by the website IFLScience. “DNA, the molecule at the heart of life, is the most powerful and sophisticated information storage device in existence. So it’s no wonder that scientists are attempting to harness its capabilities in computing and electronics. Not only does DNA have the capacity to store vast amounts of data, but it also provides the opportunity to surpass current limitations on reducing the size of electronics.”
