Watch Carbon Nanotubes Give Used Chewing Gum a Second Life

By Jesse Stanchak

You might think gum is useless once it’s been chewed, but researchers at the University of Manitoba and the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba have a surprising new application for this sticky substance. By combining chewing gum with carbon nanotubes, they built a durable yet flexible motion sensor that could have a variety of […]
