article image The recent advancement in the field of technology has paved the foundation for infusing life into non-living things. Julian Melchiorri, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, claims to have developed a silk leaf that could create oxygen for space travel as well as making life easier on Earth. The leaf was able to develop a silk leaf which can produce oxygen gas in conjunction with a silk lab from Tufts University. Feed it enough water and light, and the synthetic leaf mimics any…Read More
