Here is the first glimpse of the World's first wireless molecular network which uses rubbing alcohol to send text messages!

Researchers in the UK and Canada have created the world’s first text message via a molecular communication.


 

The messages are encoded in molecules of alcohol, which are then transported across the room to a receiver, which then senses the molecules out of the air and decodes the message.


Molecular networks are an area of interest for applications and environments where the usual method of wireless communication electromagnetic radiation.


There are many applications being considered, such as underwater, underground, in oil pipelines, or inside your body.


The way this molecule network works is by the commercial electrical sprayer (DuroBlast) transmits the signal, on the other side of the room where there are  three alcohol sensors (MQ303, MQ-3, MR513) attached to an Arduino microcontroller which receives the signal, then the transmitted message is encoded by another Arduino, which is connected to a custom switch that’s wired up to the electrical sprayer, therefore each letter of the message is encoded as binary, which is then translated into sprays. There is a fan behind the sprayer to help the molecular signal across the room.
