Inventor creates oxygen-producing leaf


Time now for some scientific breakthrough as Royal College of Art graduate, Julian Melchiorri, has claimed that he invented a "silk leaf" that produces oxygen not just for space travel but also for clean air. This "synthetic leaf" was co-developed with Tufts University.

Julian says that this silk leaf was very light, low energy-consuming, completely biological, and his idea for this leaf he created was to use the efficiency of nature in a man-made environment. I was amazed by this but can Brainiacs harness the energy of the leaves? Eh...nope.
