Nature-inspired new humidity sensor technology

Camels have a renowned ability to survive on little water. They are also skilful at finding something to drink in vast desert conditions, using noses that are exquisite moisture detectors. In a new study at ACS Nano, researchers describe a humidity sensor inspired by the structure and properties of camels’ noses. In experiments, they found this device could reliably detect variations in humidity in settings that included industrial exhaust and the air surrounding human skin.
