Gear  |  News
Portuguese designer Susana Soares has developed a device for detecting cancer and other serious diseases using trained bees. The bees are placed in a glass chamber into which the patient exhales; the bees fly into a smaller secondary chamber if they detect cancer.

Scientists have found that honey bees - Apis mellifera - have an extraordinary sense of smell that is more acute than that of a sniffer dog and can detect airborne molecules in the parts-per-trillion range.

Bees can be trained to detect specific chemical odours, including the biomarkers associated with diseases such as tuberculosis, lung, skin and pancreatic cancer.

Turtle Gets A LEGO Wheel For Amputated Leg

Array
Gear  |  News
Schildi is not your average turtle, is a pet turtle living in Germany when he was abandoned (or escaped), and lost a leg. Schildi was rescued, and vets were able to amputate his mangled limb and replace it with a LEGO wheel.
Dr. Azmanis used a special surgical glue to stick the base block underneath tiny Schildi and then superglue to connect the corners of the block:
"After that we could add blocks to achieve the correct height," he said. And now the single wheel has proven to be successful, Schildi has been taken back to the animal shelter. "We will see him again once in a while for check-ups," Azmanis said. "If he gets a 'flat tyre' it will be a simple matter to replace the wheel. They move around quite a lot so I'd expect to see him for a new wheel about once a year."

Australian scientists from the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) have found gold in the leaves of eucalyptus trees. The particles are much too small to be seen with the naked eye but have been detected using a type of x-ray that is especially good at picking up trace amounts of metals and minerals. 

However, the amount of gold in the leaves is little. Study leader Mel Lintern told the Brisbane Times: 'If you had 500 eucalyptus trees growing over a gold deposit, they would only have enough gold in there to make a wedding ring.'
